PowerApps and DevOps connector

I'm working on a canvas PowerApp that I want to connect to Azure DevOps using PowerApps native DevOps connector.

 

1. When I bind a Gallery control to AzureDevOps connection I was expecting to see the available fields to choose from, which doesn't happen. Is this the normal behavior?

 

2. When I bind the Gallery items to a function like AzureDevOps.GetQueryResults(..... I get error icons on both the gallery control and gellery item title control. When I get help for the gallery error I get the error bellow

'AzureDevOps.GetQueryResults failed: { "status": 404, "message": "Page not found.\r\nAzure DevOps ActivityId: 806434d3-1f36-4824-b5b2-97b416fa3e07\r\nclientRequestId: 1b096ef2-7de1-4477-8707-caaed2305596", "source": "vsts-we.azconn-we-01.p.azurewebsites.net" }'.

 

In browser developer console there are some errors :

- Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found) graph.windows.net/ee137cc4-5d43-43cf-9da5-f75728b8d21f/users/<myuser>@<mydomain>/thumbnailPhoto?api-version=2013-11-08:1

- Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found) graph.windows.net/me/thumbnailPhoto?api-version=1.6:1 

- Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 () europe-002.azure-apim.net/invoke:1

 

When I use any of the links referred above as 'Failed to load resource' I get the authentication error message below:

<code>Authentication_MissingOrMalformed</code>
<message xml:lang="en">Access Token missing or malformed.</message>
</error>

 

Can someone advise on how to use the DevOps connector within PowerApps?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: PowerApps and DevOps connector

The issue you're experiencing is because PowerApps doesn't natively support the Azure DevOps connector. What you'll need to do is create a Flow which utilizes the Azure DevOps connector to perform the query. Using the PowerApps action, PowerApps Response and Ask in PowerApps, you can create a Flow you can then call from from your PowerApps (via screen onvisible, button etc) which returns the ADO query results. This you can then display in the gallery.

Re: PowerApps and DevOps connector

Hi and thank you for your quick answer. Microsoft is doing a nice job on comming out with new things but they should do a better job on documenting them ... based on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/visualstudioteamservices/  where it says AzureDevops connector is supported on PowerApps (and we don't see any restrictions) it's reasonable to assume that the connector is supported to be used as any other connector. What would be of us if it wasn't the community knowledge ...

 

Thanks again Clive

Re: PowerApps and DevOps connector

Hi Yazid and thank you. I will for sure read your article. Meanwhile I've followed CliveEastwood suggestion (thanks again @CliveEastwood) and I'm using flows get the DevOps data I need, populating PowerApps collections with the retrieved data and using the collections as PowerApps data sources.

 

Best regards
