I am using the approach posted here by Vadim Gremyachev: Get current user information and add to email action in workflow?

here the REST-URL: /_api/Web/SiteUserInfoList/items?$filter=(ID eq <UserId>)

But the response code returns


I have the needed permissons on the list and site and also I am not using system account.

Any ideas?

    Seeing this SO post, you probably need Accept header. Like: "Accept": "application/json; odata=verbose". stackoverflow.com/a/14252326/1934559 – Akhoy Oct 7 '15 at 10:16
  • I specified the requestHeader dictonary but forgot to set it in the web service call! facepalm, thx Akhoy! – Patrick Oct 7 '15 at 10:18
  • Should I add it as an answer so you can mark it? – Akhoy Oct 7 '15 at 10:18
  • yes, you can but maybe write also to check the web service call action – Patrick Oct 7 '15 at 10:19

Seeing this SO post: 406-Not Acceptable Response, you probably need Accept header.

"Accept": "application/json; odata=verbose".

You need to add this in your web service call action.
