Dataverse Image URL

Is it possible to get the URL of a dataverse image into Power Apps?  Either the thumbnail or full image

 

I need to be able to add the URL to a collection and pass to an API

Hi @ChrisHarper 

Yes, basically we need to construct this URL: https://orgc34d9a55.crm8.dynamics.com/Image/download.aspx?Entity=cr71c_myimageentity&Attribute=cr71c...

Please try this way and let me know if this helps you:

  • Create a table

  • Add an image column as below:
    JamesYumnam_1-1626622428954.png

    Add a new image record:

    JamesYumnam_2-1626623105682.png

     

    In the URL, there is the organisation URL, then Entity = table name, Attribute = image column name, id = the value in the MyImageEntity. So other values are static but ID is the dynamic one. To fetch the ID I have done this.
  • In power apps app, I have a label whose Text property is set as below:

 

 

Concatenate("https://orgc34d9a55.crm8.dynamics.com/Image/download.aspx?Entity=cr71c_myimageentity&Attribute=cr71c_entityimage&Id=",Gallery1.Selected.MyImageEntity)​

 

This will give the below:

Hi @ChrisHarper,

 

The above will only retrieve the primary image as a thumbnail. The URL to download a specific column image would use the following patterns:

Thumbnail: https://<orgUrl>/api/data/v9.1/<entity-type(id)>/<image-attribute-name>/$value 

Full-size image: https://<orgUrl>/api/data/v9.1/<entity-type(id)>/<image-attribute-name>/$value?size=full

 

Note that if the full image size is greater than 16 MB, you will need to download the file in 4 MB chunks.
