Known Issues and Limitations

The followings are some of the known limitations of using Office 365 Users connector.

  1. To use this integration, you will need access to an O365 mailbox that has the REST API enabled. To make a connection, select Sign In. You will be prompted to provide your O365 account, follow the remainder of the screens to create a connection.
  2. If you see an error using the connector, please check that the REST API is enabled. Accounts on a dedicated (on-premise) mail server or accounts that are sandbox (test) accounts may also see an error. Your administrator can learn how to migrate a mailbox here. Additionally, if you are using an EWS application access policy, please ensure that the following user-agents are allowed: "LogicAppsDesigner/*","azure-logic-apps/*","PowerApps/*", "Mozilla/*"
  3. Get manager action returns "No manager found for the specified user".
    • This happens when the user does not have a manager configured in AAD. Learn how to update an AAD user's profile to configure a manager here.
  4. Get direct reports, Get manager, Get my profile and Get user profile actions declare an input parameter Select fields. You can specify a coma separated list of fields to select in this parameter (learn more about available fields here). For example:
    • department, jobTitle
    • displayName, surname, mailNickname, userPrincipalName
  5. If the parameter is not specified, the following fields are selected by default: aboutMe, accountEnabled, birthday, businessPhones, city, companyName, country, department, displayName, givenName, hireDate, id, interests, jobTitle, mail, mailNickname, mobilePhone, mySite, officeLocation, pastProjects, postalCode, preferredLanguage, preferredName, responsibilities, schools, skills, state, streetAddress, surname, userPrincipalName, userType.
  6. Conditional Access policies can prevent the connector from running as expected. Example of an error: "AADSTS53003: Access has been blocked by Conditional Access policies. The access policy does not allow token issuance.". Please refer to Azure AD Conditional Access documentation for more details.
