Couldn't download the file error, from Powerapps both in my latest Powerapps version on my android phone as well as on the browser

Hello Team, 

 

I am facing a challenge in downloading attachments under my details page when i click on the attachment name on the attachment datacard. This is both from my android mobile phone as well as browser. I am using the latest powerapp version. Is this some form of a bug? Please help.WhatsApp Image 2020-06-11 at 13.11.45.jpeg

So after lots of searching, i finally got it to work. To help anyone else who might experience the same, here is what was happening.

The issue was on the Value property under the advanced tab on Items property. The default was mapping the Value property to ID. Changed it to map to Value and now it's working well.

Hi @JayMagness ,

 

No, i am not running it on Teams. I am running it on my PowerApps app on my Android phone as well as on the browser on my laptop. Failing on both.

I have been on a support call with Microsoft about this and the solution for us was a setting in a Permissions Group we had. Check your permission groups for the Sharepoint List and make sure that the Open Item option is ticked.

Hi Afara,

 

I am having the same issue, unable to download the attachments in my canvas app for a SharePoint list. 

 

I tried to follow your steps but I don't see Value property for my attachment control.

 

Please see the below screenshot and let me know if I need to make any changes.

None of the solutions worked for me, however changing the Items to "Table(First(ThisItem.Attachments))" and then using "AbsoluteURL" as the Value worked great.
