Version 1.9.0

Expected / Desired Behavior / Question

Using the PropertyFieldPeoplePicker, I have set it so that allowDuplicates is false, multiSelect is true and the principalType is PrincipalType.Security. I would expect to be able to select multiple security groups. After making a single initial selection, and then when I begin typing for a second selection, I would expect to see suggested groups.

Observed Behavior

When no groups are selected, I can being typing and get suggested security groups as expected. Once I make a selection and begin to look for a second security group I get 'No results found'. If I change the PropertyFieldPeoplePicker so that allowDuplicates is set to true (or add further PrincipalTypes), I can enter and receive suggestions for more than one security group.

Steps to Reproduce

Add a PropertyFieldPeoplePicker control to a web part project and configure it so that:

  • allowDuplicate: false,
  • multiSelect: true,
  • principalType: [PrincipalType.Security]

PropertyFieldPeoplePicker('securityGroups', { label: 'NO Duplicates, Multi-select, PrincipalType.Security', initialData:, allowDuplicate: false, multiSelect: true, principalType: [PrincipalType.Security], onPropertyChange: this.onPropertyPaneFieldChanged, context: this.context, properties:, onGetErrorMessage: null, deferredValidationTime: 0, key: 'securityGroupsFieldId' })

Run the project using gulp serve and then browse to the SharePoint Online Workbench _layouts/15/workbench.aspx.

Edit the web part and select a security group from the PropertyFieldPeoplePicker. Then attempt to select a second security group which you know exists.


Thanks for these controls and all your efforts, they're great.
