URGENT - Images suddenly stopped showing in PowerApps browse galleries

The process i use right now worked for over a month and one day just proceeded to stop functioning.


  • I have sharepoint lists, these lists contain image columns, I pull the images directly from MS Teams folders by using the link share feature within teams. (See the 'teams link' attachment)


  • As you can see, the image links work fine and display correctly within the sharepoint list.('Sharepoint' attachment)


  • finally, as you can see i have used the sharepoint list datasource and customised the look of the browsegallery. The images (country flags) should be showing above each update. in the image property box i use the 'Thisitem.image' function to get the images and has been working for the last month.


if anyone can suggest why it suddenly has stopped working it would be a HUGE help!


The date my team found this issue ironically was when powerapps released an update on the Model driven app framework see link (11th december 2018)

GOOD NEWS! I have checked the app and as of 06/01/2019 The images are loading up correctly. Thank you PowerApps for resolving the issue.

I have exactly the same problem. Is something related with the update because ALL my Apps stop working.



I have the same issue today, the images have been showing for the last two months.

Have you had any feedback ?



I am having the same issue! We just rolled this out to the company the other day and now all of a sudden it doesn't work.

Please note that I was able to reproduce this issue. Looks like the problem is with image links that are "behind" a service that require additional authorization (MS Teams for example). Unrestricted image links seem to be accessible. 

@cherie, can you please check this?

Thank you for responding, I can confirm though that all members of my Powerapp have full access rights to the Sharepoint and the MS Teams site that holds all my images. Still waiting for a fix. 


This process did work for weeks. I suspect it was an update that caused the issue.

I am also getting the same problem with images stored in SharePoint being access via a Hyperlink / Picture column from a list.  This was all working fine, but now will not work on any apps.  Can you please fix asap?

All of my users have access to the SharePoint folder where the pictures live and they have access to the SharePoint list (where I use the URL for picture). The pictures are still visible in my SharePoint list.


I see a lot of people are experiencing the same issues. Do you know what is going on?

There are a few other posts [1] [2] describing the same problem. Paul Culmsee's post from September 2017 describes how this image dispaly feature used to work. F12 debuggin shows what's going on:


Each image POSTs to https://[location] with header (sanitised): 

x-ms-request-url: /apim/sharepointonline/xxxxx/datasets/


But that is returning a 404.


I don't think any of this has changed since Paul's post last year. Maybe something broke recently in the GetFileContentByPath method?

Upon inspecting i have found each image returning a 404 error code along with the following:


https://[location] as a POST 


Is this something I have caused or is it the Powerapps platform? 


Ideally like a solution to this as i havnt been successfull as of yet.
