I'm running into the following issue. I am testing how well PowerApps integrate with the Azure Blob Storage.
I followed the basics at this tutorial and first it seemed to work.
After a few hours I went back and I made some changes to the structure of the excel file that I uploaded accroding to the tutorial.
Before the images where stored as a relative path into a container. In the ".\tableName_images\fileName.fileExtension" format.
After the changes it looks like "blob:http://127.0.0.1:38582/9f2311df-458b-41ea-bcfd-d03758048798" and no files are uploaded into the blob storage.
What am I doing wrong or what should I change to make it work again?
Actually those image files are saved as file path in Excel, so when changing the file path, it will cause the image not display.
(The Image folder should be created by PowerApps automatically)
Check the following document for more details:
Specially for the "Upload pen drawings to the cloud" part.
Besides, based on what I know, there is no direct way to save the image file directly within PowerApps, there is a blog talking about using Custom API to upload image to Azure Blob Storage, which you may take a look:
This is the structure of the Excel sheet that I uploaded into the Azure Blob Storage.
First the images were stored as a relative path like "./excelsheet_images/filename.fileExtension"
After I made some changes in the PowerApp suddenly the images were being stored as you can see in the screenshot. Since then PowerApps isn't able to retrieve the uploaded images. So I wonder if I did something wrong or if this is some strange bug from PowerApps.
Please vote for this idea:
You can now store your files in Azure Blob Storage, see the blog post for more info: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/upload-files-from-powerapps-using-the-azure-blob-storage-...
