ShoutOut Powerapp issue with Profile PIctures

Hi everyone, my first post!

Regarding the shoutout powerapp, which is great by the way, i am getting the following error opening the app

 

Office365Users.UserPhotoMetadata failed: { "error": { "code": "ErrorItemNotFound", "message": "The photo wasn't found.", "innerError": { "request-id": "89cdda18-d053-4d78-853a-2495f7206b4e", "date": "2018-11-07T20:31:50" } } }

 

Based on my research it is recommended to use the UserprofileV2 command, which i did, but i am still gettin the errorl. I am aware that there are many users that prefer not to have a profile picture, so ignoring the error is not really what i want them to do.

 

Does anyone have a way to just suppress the error message? or how to fix it?

Hi @frmelo21,

 

To display Office 365 profile pictures without throwing errors,  you need to do several checks ahead of time.

 

  1. Check to see if the user has an Id
  2. Check to see if the user is an external user by inspecting the domain for their email account
  3. Check to see if the user has a profile picture
  4. If any of the checks fail, display a placeholder image
  5. If all of the checks pass, call Office365Users.UserPhoto to return the photo and display it

Please use below formula instead:

If(
    IsBlank(ThisItem.Id),
    'profilepic-generic-user',
    If(
       Not(UserDomain.Text = MyDomain),
       'profilepic-generic-user',
       (
        If(
            Office365Users.UserPhotoMetadata(ThisItem.Id).HasPhoto = true,
            Office365Users.UserPhoto(ThisItem.Id),
            'profilepic-generic-user')
           )
       )
   )

Hi Mona

Thank you for your help but where would i add that code?

on start?

i am having a hard time inserting code. Maybe that's a different problem, but i can't see to be able to have the ability to insert code or even do returns. 

from further research it looks like this is something that microsoft has to fix. 

I was told that they have deployed a fix to US tenants, but i am unsure if it has hit my tenant yet.

has anyone gotten this to work?

I've been trying to get this issues sorted for weeks. Eventually a MS engineer said it was a bug on their end, but i've not heard anything back since.

 

It's very frustrating, not impressed with MS at all. Get it sorted!!

We are working to resolve issues with Office365Users.UserPhotoMetadata connector.

At this time, please use the UserPhotoV2 endpoint and comment out the use of UserPhotoMetadata.
