Hi @hari ,

The attachment control will only upload local device files. You would need to link to the Library, send the ID of the desired item and the target list item to a flow and attach it with that. Something like this

Hi Warren,

sorry for the late response ,

Sure I will try and let you know the result. we are wafting for the full license 

 

mean while also I am trying another way around, need your help ,

I am trying to get it done using SPO out-of-box features ,

adding lookup site column column with multiple values .

Lookup will be the source document column which is storing CDN  image urls , and destination will be the a list, look up site column, referring CDN image urls multiple values option  .So far things are good , but I am not sure lookup column can be scrawled in the search, managed properties list .while will be expose this value through API .

will it work ?

I appreciate your valuable suggestion.

 

Regards,

Hari

 

 

 

Hi @hari ,

I do not use lookup columns and there are very few reasons you might need to in Power Apps. You can do the same lookup in Power Apps without the restrictions and complications the columns add.

HI @WarrenBelz 

Thanks for your reply , and thanks for understanding the requirement .

I really wanna approach the same which you have been suggesting to me , because of the complexity to maintain or troubleshoot the approach I have shared to you .

regarding Power App approach , unfortunately I am waiting for the approvals from my team to go ahead and implement the power apps .

Mean while I would like to go through the steps on free version power apps on Dev env as a POC , could you please share me the detailed steps to achieve your approach , it will be great , as I am new to Power Apps .

 

Regards,

Hari

@hari ,

You need to join both as data sources and then repeat whatever you are using in the Lookup column using a Power Apps LookUp.
