HI @dompanha ,

Do you upload a image from your PowerApps app back to your business central table?


Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the Patch function could achieve your needs. Firstly, you need to create a Blob field in your business central table to store the image data uploaded from your PowerApps app.

Then create a Blank canvas app, add your business central table as data source. Then add a Camera control (Camera1) within this app. Add a "Submit" button, set the OnSelect property to following:


       'Business Central Table',
        Defaults('Business Central Table'),
          'Primary Field': "xxx",
           BlobField: Camera1.Photo



Please consider take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved.

hi @v-xida-msft,
the problem is i can't see the blob field in business central table, in table Customer the blob field is Picture but using connector in PowerApps i can't see this field, thanks for your comment.


I have been struggling with obtaining a picture from business central. I would suspect that the challenge you are facing is caused by the same issue with the connector that causes my challenge.


The "tables" that is available with the business central connector does not contain the exact same data as you would find in the Customer table in business central. The available tables in the connector are API's, and hence, have pre-defined content specified by Microsoft. For an example, if you take a look at the table named purchaseDocuments in the business central connector, it will have all invoices and orders related to purchasing, but the table does not exsist in the Business central. 


I guess that you could solve your problem using a Flow consisting of business central functions or HTTP-calls.
