Extract image from body of teams message (and convert to base64)

Hi,

 

I'm trying to get an image from the body of a teams message.

 

I know the image is stored in a location similar to this one:

 

https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/teams/eeca1618-16f7-40de-a402-bb1cfce7e9c4/channels/19:31bf2ce9492f...

 

From this URL I want to get the image data and convert it to base64 (if needed) in order to then write it to a CDS record.

 

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Thanks but I don’t think this is the same issue.

The url is graph not sharepoint, and the image is in the body of the message, not an attachment.

Any one any ideas on this ? The issue is that the image is not an attachment, it is in the body of the message. See the JSON, the image source is in body.content attachments is empty. When I try and use the URL from the source I get an authentication error.

hi @mrpowergage  this is the full json? Because as you see the link with src image has a variable called Value.

 

https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/teams/eeca1618-16f7-40de-a401-bb1cfce7e9c4/channels/19:31bf2ce9492f.../$value\

 

So if we don't know what is in value is going to be imposible to get the image.

 

You could use parse json to get the "content": that is in json like this.

Yes that's the full json. As you can see the src it is a link to  https://graph.micro.... when I visit that link I get

 

{
  "error": {
    "code": "InvalidAuthenticationToken",
    "message": "Access token is empty.",
    "innerError": {
      "request-id": "2fd192af-c1c6-484a-9f8d-801ce208ed91",
      "date": "2020-03-15T13:25:06"
    }
  }
}

 I'm guessing I need to find a way to authenticate in order to get that data.

 

Any ideas??

ok @mrpowergage  please follow this post to do that https://sjoukjezaal.com/azure-b2b-sharepoint-online-solution-using-powerapps-flow-and-the-graph-api/

Many thanks @ChristianAbata 

 

This looks beyond my expertise at this point. I may come back to it, but for now I'm going to find a different way to get the images into the system (probably Kaizala).

 

Thanks for all help.

@mrpowergage  sure Kaizala is more easy.
