Get User's information from Azure Active Directory

Occasional Contributor

Hello,

I am new to Microsoft Flow.

Creating a flow which requires getting user's information from Azure Active Directory, like Manager name and email address.
How to get user's information from AAD?

Hello! In ms Flow you can pull users information from Office 365 Users Connector. Greets, Eva

@PriyaRaskar there is an Azure AD Connector though it appears to only support retrieving a limited set of properties, including Mail and Mobile Phone, but not including Manager (Reports-To) or Department.

 

It's odd, you can set a user's manager or their department using Flow or Logic Apps, but there doesn't seem to be a way to retrieve their current values.

@Eli Robillard Thank you for the help Eli Robillard.
As you mentioned, I couldn't find a way to get Manager Name, but I found a work around to get Manager's email ID to send an email, which was the requirement.
I used Get Manager(V2) connector and passed User's email ID as User(UPN) and retrieved his manager's  email ID.

Thank you for the help!
