Flow error while using outlook connector

Hi Guys,

 

I am following steps exactly as below link but instead of using camera button, i am using addmedia button.

in Flows i am getting below error. Any idea why?

 

Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Create_file' inputs at line '1' and column '2165': 'The template language function 'base64 To Binary' was invoked with a parameter that is not valid. The value cannot be decoded from base64 representation.'.

That worked about 6 months ago, but changes to the outlook connector have broken that workaround.

Camera images and uploaded images are treated differently inside PowerApps.  That is the root of the problem you are having.  You can't use the same procedure for saving uploaded images as a file because the images aren't actually in PowerApps.  Instead they are stored in your browser cache and PowerApps has a reference to that.  Camera images are actually stored in PowerApps. I'm not aware of an easy way to save uploaded images to SharePoint at this point.
