I am trying to build a canvas powerapp which will be used on mobile/phone device. I need to access and show below device information in canvas app. Is it possible? If Yes, can you please suggest solution or point me in right direction?
Information I want to access:
Based on the issue you mentioned, you want to extract information like MAC address to be shown in your app.
Currently, there is no function supported in PowerApps to retrieve these device info from Mobile device.
If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
@v-qiaqi-msft , This is what I thought (after my research on the same). But, I wanted to know if there is any workaround to achieve this.
Is anyone else has any thought/idea on same? Is it possible using any custom API or custom connector or PowerApps component framework (PCF) ??
Based on several ideas you put forward, this will be hard work.
As an available solution, you could consider set up a REST API using some programming language, e.g. C#. Within this REST API, define some function or methods to get mobile device info.
Then go to your PowerApps, create a custom connector based on this REST API. After that, you could use the custom connector action to request the mobile device info.
Here is some reference for you:
Hope this will be helpful.
Thank you @v-qiaqi-msft .
However, I have created a new Idea on PowerApps Idea forum. If anyone want Microsoft to add these functionalities in PowerApps then please vote and support my Idea at:
