REAL TIME: Report SharePoint user mapping results

The view is named report_validatedsharepointusers and defined on the “Internal Database”.
Use it with a DataETL Step or a For-Each Step.
See also: How SharePoint user mapping works

From the DataETL Step you can output the reporting result to:
  • Excel table in a new or existing workbook that subsequently can be uploaded to SharePoint
  • CSV file that subsequently can be uploaded to SharePoint
  • Items in a SharePoint List
  • Records in a database (Internal database, SQL Server or generic ODBC)

Active integrated reporting

The report can be a stand alone job you run or an integrated part of your migration set up since it is based on a standard DataETL Step.
You can choose to create the report at the end of a job or for each iteration in a For-Each and for example only if any errors happen (test the Variable [<ETL-Count>] > 0 to determine if any rows were reported). Then upload an output CSV or XLSX to SharePoint and name it according to the context in which it was created (for example ProjectId or CustomerId etc). Or create Items in a SharePoint list for review. Then finally notify someone or start a workflow using PowerAutomate.
