OneDrive For Business: Image/User permission problem

I have an app that uses an Excel file stored in my OneDrive For Business as a data source. I am able to store images via the Camera control within the app; however, when other users try to save an image, the image does not show for users other than who created the image.

I have tried giving Full Permission to the /images folder for the users, but the images still do not show for users other than the creator.

 

Any thoughts on how to get the images to show for all users?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: OneDrive For Business: Image/User permission problem

Hi @jsarnold,

 

I just created a similar app and I got the result that all users can only see his own pics that he took/uploaded in his app. I will try to report this to the pg and will update here once I have further information.

Hi @jsarnold,

 

It seems that with the "Add Picture" control, you can actually update the data source using the Patch function. See the resolution here:

Hope this could help.

I am already utilizing the Add Picture element to Patch a collection. It works fine for me, but the image does not seem to save to OneDrive for other users.

Does this make sense?

@v-monli-msftI use the exact same method, and the PowerApp saves the images (along with the other data) perfetly for me; however, when other users within our organization use the app, they are only able to see the images they save, but no other users. 

 

Here is a screenshot to the [images] folder:

And here in the XLS you can see that when the last two attempts occured, PowerApps created a URL, but the file does not show up when I check the [images] folder.

After testing with other users, it is exactly how you describe, @v-monli-msft.

 

Users are only able to see the images they have saved.
