Unable to send Email Alias in a SharePoint Online Workflow Send Email Action

Are you trying to send an email alias security group using Send Email Action SharePoint Online with the help of the SharePoint designer workflow?

Well, this is the design behavior of SharePoint Online and it doesn’t validate the AD Azure security group due to security enhancement and shows below error message while configuring in Send Email Action.

“The selected user(s) may not be valid on the site this workflow is published on. If a recipient is not a valid SharePoint user, he or she will not receive workflow emails.”

So let’s talk about the solution approach.

  • Create a SharePoint group and add the email alias (Security group) to the group and configure the SharePoint group in Send Email Action.
  • The functionality still works fine in SharePoint 2010 workflow templates and you can use SharePoint 2010 workflow for Send email functionality. Call SharePoint 2010 workflow from SharePoint 2013 workflow for Send email functionality.

This tutorial, we learned how to send an email alias security group using Send Email Action SharePoint Online with the help of SharePoint designer workflow.
