Hiya

 

Change your hyperlink column in SharePoint to render image not URL and it should work...

If you are trying to return images from SharePoint Picture library it won't work unfortunately 😐 

 

I came across this problem as well, so I've raised a ticket with Microsoft and they've explained that is related with the way PA is trying to get the images - it doesn't authenticate properly to SP so it can't get the images.

 

Workaround suggested by them was to save the images in a SharePoint list 'Picture' column.

 

Unfortunately, the workaround doesn't suit my scenario, and nothing in the conversation suggested that this will be looked at in the future to be resolved ...
