I have a requirement where I am checking a user account whether it does exist in User Profile Service or not. And if the account doesn't exist then it will create an account. I am using CSOM for this.
It throws an exception "Forbidden" on
clientContext.ExecuteQuery() when I don't impersonate the identity and the account doesn't exist. By impersonating the identity the account gets created even for those user whose accounts are already existent which I don't prefer. I am using the following code:
var loginName = HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name; var peopleManager = new PeopleManager(clientContext); var properties = peopleManager.GetPropertiesFor(loginName); clientContext.Load(properties, p => p.PersonalUrl, p => p.UserProfileProperties); clientContext.ExecuteQuery();
Is there a way where I can catch
UserProfileNoUserFoundException exception instead of exception "Forbidden"?
