Read User Roles

Get roles that are assigned to a user in Office 365.

Caution

The Read User Roles action card only reads roles that are activated in an Office 365 tenant. Additionally, the card only reads default system roles. It doesn't read custom roles.

Input

Field Definition Type Required
User
ID or Username User ID or username of the Office 365 user. This is the user's User Principal Name (UPN). A UPN is formed by taking the username and domain and combining them with the @ separator.

For example, john.doe@somedomain.com. This could be the user’s email address, but this is not true in all cases.

String TRUE
Tip

If the string for the UPN input begins with $, remove the slash / after /users and enclose the UPN value in parentheses and single quotes. For example, /users('$AdeleVance@contoso.com'). See Known issues with Microsoft Graph.

To search for a B2B user using a UPN input value, encode the hash # character as %23. For example, /users/AdeleVance_adatum.com%23EXT%23@contoso.com.
