sharepoint connector data source

I created a data source in an app with the sharepoint connector and named it powerappsimages . Later I come back to the App , and I cannot figure out what URL I was using for the data source . How can I find out which SP list my App is populating ?

You should be able to find the SharePoint datasource used by your app by checking the data properties:

1. Click on "View" and then "Data Sources" menu options.

2. In the pop-up data panel, find the "powerappsimages" data source that you previously used to create your app. Click on the "..." menu and select the "Edit data" option.

Hi, Yes, I see , thanks. However, I only see Refresh and Remove , not Edit Data , why is that ?

 

I'm not sure why you don't see "Edit data". Could be a permission issue. Is your app pulling data from that list? Can you see if the following works?:

1. Temporarily add a "ListBox" control. Make sure it's added to the screen and not to a gallery or form.

2. Go to "Advanced" properties panel for ListBox1 and paste the following into the "Items" field: powerappsimages.'{Link}'  (or [NameOfYourDataset].'{Link}')

3. You may need to adjust the font size in order to see the link.

Yes, thanks, I see the idea . UNfortunately nothing is displayed at run time . In the meantime I actually found the list in SP that I am populating so it's OK , but it is not the first time I have tried to find details about my data sources .
