I'm trying to use DataSourceInfo to test if a user can delete an item in a list:
text property of a label control
If(DataSourceInfo(MyTestList,DataSourceInfo.DeletePermission) = true, "You can delete an item in the current list"),"Ok you don't have delete permission");
And I've tested with CreatePermission, EditPermission. It always return true.
To be sure, I've check the permission of the user for that list from the list permission, and he doesn't have delete permission, neither create or edit.
What's wrong with the formula above?
Hi @ebaron ,
Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test, and the issue is confirmed on my side.
I would post this issue to my product team, if the issue is solved, I would reply here.
Hi @ebaron ,
Just an update --
I’ve seen this incident in the past and has surfaced on the forums a few times. All I know is that DataSourceInfo is not supported (at least for Sharepoint)
Currently, the DataSourceInfo() function is not supported in SharePoint List. The Product Team is investigating this issue, and plan to add support for this function.
Workaround hack for the DataSourceInfo-always-true bug.
1. Create a new Sharepoint list with 1 row
2. Grant read permission only to the group you want to test
3. Add a hidden Gallery control to your PowerApp that refers to your new list
4. The Gallery will only load rows if the user has that permission, so use CountRows to test this.
