Flow parsing select and expand failed get manager (v2)

Recently, for one of my requirement I was using Get Manager (V2) flow action to get manager email of the user.

But I got the above error.

I was using the flow action like below:

flow parsing select and expand failed

Get manager (V2) takes one parameter as User (UPN) which will take the User principal name or email id.

Also, it optionally asks you to Select fields where you can provide the parameters which you want to retrieve.

Here, I have added Email/Mail (tried both), which was causing the issue.

To fix the issue, I removed the parameter from Select fields.

Actually, if you will not add anything in the Select fields, it will get all the parameters of the user’s manager. Properties like Mail, City, Country, Company name, Department, Display Name, Given Name, Hire Date, Job Title, Mobile Phone, Nickname etc.

Now, the flow looks like below:

After this I am able to get the manager name of the user in Microsoft Flow.
