Known Issues and Limitations

  1. The When a group member is added or removed trigger can return the same change in subsequent responses due to underlying backend service limitations. Your Power Automate flow or LogicApps application must be prepared for such replays. Please learn more here.

  2. If you see the "Cannot Update a mail-enabled security groups and or distribution list" error, please use the Exchange admin center to manage such groups.

  3. AAD groups with the attribute "isAssignableToRole" are not supported for now.

Pagination

Pagination is needed for queries that return larger lists of results.

  • The pagination feature in Power Automate and Logic Apps supports some of the operations in the Office 365 Groups connector.
  • Canvas Apps gallery control does not supported automatic pagination for the Office 365 Groups connector. Paging must be implemented manually and cached in a collection.

Supported operations

  • ListGroupMembers
  • OnGroupMembershipChange
  • ListGroups

To implement a paging experience in canvas apps, parse the @odata.nextLink field to retrieve the $skipToken value.

Warning

This field should not be used in Power Automate or Logic Apps. Please only use the @odata.nextLink and $skipToken fields in canvas apps.

Manual pagination in canvas apps

Initial Load

To load the first page of the data, use the below code in an action property of a logical control (e.g., the page's OnVisible property or on a button that initiates a search).

/* Call the	ListGroups operation and save response to a variable */
Set( var_response, Office365Groups.ListGroups() );

/* Parse the $skipToken value from the @odata.nextLink value in the response */
Set( var_nextLink, Last(Split( var_response.'@odata.nextLink', "=")).Result );

/* Save the response into a collection */
ClearCollect( col_groups, var_response.value );

/* Clear out the previous pages collection */
Clear( col_prevLinksData );

/* Reset page counter to 1 */
Set( var_page, 1 );

Load next page


/* Update page counter */
Set( var_page, var_page + 1 );

/* Save the last link in a collection */
Collect( col_prevLinksData, { 
    page: var_page, 
    link: var_nextLink 
} );

/* Get next page response */
Set( var_response, Office365Groups.ListGroups({ '$skiptoken': var_nextLink }));

/* Parse the next page's skiptoken value */
Set( var_nextLink, Last(Split( var_response.'@odata.nextLink', "=" )).Result );

/* Save the page results to the collection */
ClearCollect( col_groups, var_response.value );

Then use the col_groups collection in the Items property of a gallery control (or other data set control) to display the loaded list of items.
