Hi @LEARN_IT,

 

May I know why did you add the Compose in flow? I think below flow should be enough if you just want to upload files to SharePoint library from PowerApps.

I do not have your issue using this flow in the app.

unfortunatelly I`m still waiing for Microsoft to add these type of features: uploading to Azure blob, sharepoint, etc.... Seems like there is a HUGE DEMAND for it.

Hi @ajs1

 

I have managed to create a flow that uploads a picture from PowerApps to a SharePoint picture library by using the following:

 

flow.png

 

The dataUriToBinary step is important to change the type of the object returned by PowerApps.

The formula is this: dataUriToBinary(triggerBody()['Createfile_FileContent'])

 

I would suggest to paste that formula in the expression editor and press update:

flow2.png

 

Note! you cannot test this in the editor app preview, it only works when you run the app outside the editor. For some reason, in editor it returns a different data type, than outside of it.

 

Hope this helps 🙂

Re: FILE TO SHAREPOINT

What is the object that you pass to it from PowerApp? I am trying to upload from an image upload control in PowerApp. The UploadImage.Image doesn't seem to be the expected object for the dataUrlToBinary function?

@aifong

I am using the take picture control in that case.

 

I am just about to have a look at the upload image control to see how it behaves. I'll let you know if I find a working solution.
