Hi @antonio_piernav 

 

Currently this is not supported as a direct action and it is recommended not to overpopulate the CDS by storing the reports and attachments over there and hence you can get the data rows from CDS and then pass it through powerapps and flow via sharepoint to an email box as a destination. 

 

You can refer to my blog where I have showed the functionality of how you can pass data/photos and audio from PowerApps to Flow, following the same procedure you can do this for the CDS entities.
 
 
Hope this Helps!
