I'm retrieving all of the values from a list and it's working fine on all of the fields except the People and Group Picker column.

It returns:


I'm trying to retrieve it using the following syntax (although I've tried everything):

 "Content Author" = $libitem["KBContentAuthor"].LookupValue

You need to also additional fetch details as below via Get-PnPUser command:

$value = $libitem["KBContentAuthor"]

$user = Get-PnPUser -Identity $value.LookupId

# added this just for explanation, you can remove it from the code
$email = $user.Email  
$username = $user.LoginName
$fullname = $user.Title

"Content Author" = $user.Title
  • This is fantastic. I must say I spent many hours researching this. Can you point me in the direction of the documentation that explained this? Cheers! Commented Jul 10, 2019 at 11:15
