How to get Azure Blob Storage Text File Content?

Hello,

I'm storing JSON files (.json) in Azure Blob Storage (ABS). I want to access the JSON text in PowerApps using the GetFileContent action but I'm unable to get the JSON text.

Steps:

  • Added the ABS connector to PowerApps
  • Added Gallery1 with Items property set to `AzureBlobStorage.ListRootFolderV2().value`
  • Added Gallery2 with Items property set to `AzureBlobStorage.ListFolderV2(Gallery1.Selected.Id).value`
  • Button in Gallery2 with OnSelect property set to `ClearCollect(colJSONFile,AzureBlobStorage.GetFileContent(ThisItem.Id))`

This results in a URL such as `appres://blobmanager/2ddfga995004345c53d8dggs7b3ef/11`.

How do I get the JSON text out of the blob?

Thank you!

I am able to access the JSON text content using the base64ToString Action in Flow, but I do not want to use Flow in this case.

Is there not a way to acces text from within a file?

Hi @seadude ,

 

I think this cannot be achieved so far. Please try to submit an idea in below forum:
