Whilst trying to update a SharePoint Online List Item through Power Automate I noticed that I was unable to clear a Person field within a given List Item.
After some research it turns out that the Power Automate SharePoint Online connector currently does not support this operation when performing an ‘update’ operation.
In this post I’ll explain the solution that I found, and ultimately ended up using.
SharePoint Default Permission Groups 101
After creating a new SharePoint Online site (aka Site Collection) several permissions groups are automatically created for you to help you manage permissions for the given SharePoint site.
By default, the following default permissions groups are created for you:
|SharePoint Group||Default Permissions Level|
|<site name> Members||Edit|
|<site name> Owners||Full Control|
|<site name> Visitors||Read|
