collecting attachments to collection

Hello all, I was wondering if it is possible to collect attachments into a collection. Currently, I have a list where users can attach images to their report. I am using sharepoint to store all the reports and was worried about the 2000 item limit and want to collect everything from sharepoint into a collection. Although everything else was able to collect, the attachments seems like it is not being collected. I want to be able to collect it so that I can display the images in a gallery. 

 

Thank you!

 

The image attached below is me using the sharepoint list directly, but I would like to use a collection.

Re: collecting attachments to collection

Hi @Anonymous ,

This is possible but it requires good knowledge and understanding of how Flow and PowerApps work along with calling Microsoft Graph APIs.

This is just a workaround to display list of images from SP to PA.

This is what should happen:

  1. On the OnStart Property, try calling a flow that fetches the image thumbnails from the SP library along with any custom metadata that you want.
  2. You should create a flow with Send HTTP Request to SharePoint action and calls the Graph APIs, specifically, the Drive and List APIs to fetch the image thumbnails and metadata respectively.
