People Picker Broken

Hello, everybody,

i have just set up a gateway to our sharepoint 2013 on premise and have created a sharepoint powerapp for a simple list.
I have two columns for people. The first one for people only and the second one for people and groups.


The behavior of the people picker is as follows:
1. ViewMode Empty i.e. absolutely no people, or groups visible
2.1 EditMode PeopleOnly: search by name, dropdown appears briefly and disappears immediately, without the possibility of selection
2.1 EditMode PeopleAndGroups: search by name, dropdown shows up, person can be selected, but is not displayed after selection

Are there workarounds for this, or is this a bug?

Kind regards Peter

Hi @Anonymous ,


How is your app created?

I am not able to test this issue using SharePoint On-premises, so I made some test on SharePoint Online. The People only column and People and group column are both working properly.

Could you help test this issue with SharePoint Online on your side to see if it will work?



Best regards,

Hi @v-yamao-msft ,


sure, I'm happy to help.


Create an app -> Canvas -> Start with your data -> SharePoint (phone layout) -> Connection to on prem list -> done


Oh no...if I do the same with a SharePoint online list it works.

Then it's really a bug. Either it's the gateway, or SharePoint 2013, or both.



I made a short screencast to show the behavior better.
First the viewform with empty comboboxes although both fields contain people.
Second, the editform with the broken peoplepickers.


Please let me know if you need more information.
