I am using this code to get the manager email id.But i am not able to get the email id. Get Manager/EMail from Variable: CompletedDataResponse (Output to Variable: ManagerName )

can u please help me out to solve this issue?!


Just try this one , if you are using O365 and SPD2013

  1. Open SPD2013 and your workflow
  2. Select "Lookup manager for a user" from the Relational Actions which is under Action Menu. This will basically store the Manager of a user in a variable and you can use the variable to do an insert or update to the columns or even ending emails too

  3. Lets say current Item: Created By (output to Variable:ManagerName)

check the Manager name variable to get the current manager name

Hope this helps

In SharePoint 2010 there is an action "Lookup Manager for a User" action.

In SharePoint 2013 you have to use the "Call HTTP Web Service" action.

The request url would be as follows

<<site url>>/_api/SP.UserProfiles.PeopleManager/GetPropertiesFor(accountName=@v)?@v=%27i:0%23.f|membership|<<login>>%27

You will get the Manager Info from user properties as follows


In the results you have to find the Key == Manager and get Value of the property.

Let me know if you need additional information.
