Azure DevOps for Powerapps

I am trying to implement DevOps pipeline for Power Apps by referring the link. In manual deployment, usually we will export the app and import on another app by updating it. And then we publish it.

 

But when the trigger the pipeline,  I am getting the error as "Cannot bind argument to parameter 'String' because it is an empty string." for the import and export task.

 

Anyone please help me to solve this issue. And want to know how publish will happen.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

@kattesang 

 

It seems that the Export-Solution was not described alright. Can you please provide also the yaml pipeline description?

 

Did you installed also the PowerAppsToolInstaller before running in the pipeline the Export?

 

Gabriel

Hi I am also facing almost the same problem but my export solution step is working.It just runs for 1 hour and later shows pipeline has taken more than 60 mins and fianlly fails.Please help !!!

last few lines as follows:

 

##[debug]BoundParams: ExportOutlookSynchronizationSettings = False
##[debug]BoundParams: ExportRelationshipRoles = False
##[debug]BoundParams: ExportSales = False
VERBOSE: InProcBindingRedirect: 3 - looking to resolve assembly: Microsoft.mshtml, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a

 

Hi @shantanu123456 ,

 

Can you confirm that the Test Connection task is working fine - how long does it take ?-  before running the Export task?

 

What parameters did you use for Export task? 60minutes for an export is not alright.
