Create JSON File on Azure Blob Storage

Hey there!

I want to create a text file on an Azure Blob Storage with a PowerApp Canvas App containing a simple GUI. All elements in this GUI are needed to get their values into the file (I create a collection and put it to the JSON function to create a JSON text).

So I use the Create blob functionality in the Azure Blob Storage Connector available for PowerApps. I raise the method CreateFile and pass the arguments folder path and blob name to it. The argument blob content is referred to in examples on the net containing picture elements - I tried to pass a string containing the JSON file content to it. This yields to a HTTP 400 error, but why?

If I pass a string literal to the CreateFile method, an empty file is created in the blob storage destination.


I have no idea what‘s going on here. Is there any chance to create a text file in my blob storage with a PowerApp Canvas App anyway?


Thanks in advance,
