Does Automate 11 connect to Sharepoint 2019? I am able to create a session and the step succeeds but once i want to add users to a group that next step immediately fails. Unless i am setting the step up wrong? any help with this?


<AMSHAREPOINT ACTIVITY="create_session" SITE="" SESSION="SharePointSession1" />
<AMSHAREPOINT ACTIVITY="add_user" SESSION="SharePointSession1" ID="35" TITLE="Users title" LOGIN="User ID" EMAIL="Email" />


Thank you

Hello Bradley,

What is the error that you are receiving?  What operating system are you running?  Are you able to successfully run this from the same machine outside of Automate?  

This information will help us to determine next steps.

I am running automate windows 10

I keep getting a 403 error but when creating the session using my user and password it connects but once I try the step to add users to the list it gives me that error code. It should not be forbidden as I am an admin on the page and have full permission for everything

Yes I am,  I can update these lists manually as well as through power automate scripts on the same pc

I am having similar issues:

"username field is incorrect"
"check username password or authentication type"
"403, 401" ---  yes, I am an admin.

Server 2016

I have never gotten a successful connection to sharepoint online and there appears to be no supporting documentation.

<strong>Take a look at similar thread below</strong>.&nbsp; This is a general issue with AM11 SharePoint Online.&nbsp; In the examples above the connection step with username/password isn't even used until an actual SharePoint action like get list, upload file, download file is executed.&nbsp;<br> <br>
