PDF input field for Power automate


I've created a Power Automate flow that takes a PDF file as input. That was not an issue with the manually trigger function. Now i need to incorporate this into a power app. I have ofc. change my trigger to the power app instead of the manually trigger functionality.


My problem is that i can't find any functionality allowing me to let a user upload a PDF through the app, so this can be used as a trigger with the PDF as input for the Power Automate flow.

Can anyone help?


I can see that some people manipulate the Image function and converting the pdf to an image and then parse a base64 string. Is this really the way to do it?

Best Regards
