PowerApps - PWA - get data from page

Hi

I need to get information from the site where I put PowerApps.
PowerApps is added to the page using Iframe. At the moment I use Param, e.g Param(infoProj) and get data from query string

 

<iframe width="1024" height="576" src="https://apps.powerapps.com/play/[ID]?source=website&screenColor=rgba(165,34,55,1)&infoProj=ABCD&infoId=ABCD-0013" />

Is there any way to get PowerApps data from the website dynamically? (Data on the site changes, Apps responds to these changes)

 

Maybe Flow? Any idea will be helpful.

Re: PowerApps - PWA - get data from page

Hi @KrzysiekOle ,

 

I'm afraid that there is no way to pass the parameters to apps dynamically in PowerApps, because, for the moment, parameters can only be passed to the app each time the app starts.

If you want to pass parameters dynamically, you can submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum.

I find someone has submitted a similar idea, you can share more feedback in it.  if an idea is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.

Best regards,

Sik

Thank you for your answer.
So let's forget about dynamic getting data.
The application starts and I only want to get the data from the site once when the apps starts.
I tried to collect any data using Flow and Rest but I need the context in which the application is located (url site).

 

I apologize for boring the topic but I want to make sure that at the moment nothing can be done about it.

Temporary solution. I add script editor with javascript code to the page. The script changes the embedded 'iframe'

and adds a parameter that it previously extracts from the page context.

It works
