Need action(s) to Get user profile by User ID

We need to get user information with User ID as input.

The three actions to get user information do not accept User ID as input.

  • SharePoint Get User Profile only accepts email as input

  • Azure Get user detail only accepts email as input

  • Azure Query users allow query on many attributes, but not User ID.

Problem: we have list with too many lookup fields. Only 8 lookup fields can be returned correctly. Four lookup fields are system fields:

  • Created By

  • Modified By

  • App Created By (field generated by Nintex Forms)

  • App Modified By (field generated by Nintex Forms)

But we have lists that have 5 or more Person fields. When you query a list with too many lookup fields only the ID is returned for anything beyond the 8th lookup field. So we need action to get user information using the User ID as input.

    Yes, exactly.

    Hi Laura, when you say user id, do you mean the ID returned from the lookup?
