Adding Image Type to a field in an Entity, doesn't display

Hi,

 

I'm adding a new field to an Entity.  I've named the field Image and selected the Data Type as 'Image'.  I see it in my list of fields but once I save the Entity I can no longer see the field.  When I try to add in a new field again with the same name an error message appears advising a field all ready exists with that name.

 

Also when I'm in the App Designer I can't see the field to add to the 'form'

 

I've created two fields one called mage and another called signature both with Data type 'Image'  I'm hoping to get these from a canvas application.

 

Any idea where I can find these fields??

Hi @ClarkyPA365,

I don’t think custom image fields are available to model driven apps at the moment, only for Canvas apps. Take a look at this article

I tried and tested, I am able to create multiple image fields in CDS entity but unable to find them for adding to the form. 

 

Another thread also reported the same issue.

It looks like there is a bug. Since its a preview feature, we are expected to face such bugs. Please report it to Microsoft. Please mark it as answer if my post helps.

Re: Adding Image Type to a field in an Entity, doesn't display

Hi @Satish-Reddy @HSheild 

Thanks for your responses and sorry for replying a bit late.

 

I've been provided this link

https://community.dynamics.com/365/b/sachinbansalmicrosoft/posts/powerapp-working-with-images-part-1...

 That shows how to upload an image.

 

I'm having trouble following the procedure as my Environment doesn't have Advanced customisation setting but does have the Admin Centre.  All so the Environment i'm working in was set-up by a colleague, would this have any impact on me not seeing some of the features?

 

When selecting the Admin Centre the process doesn't seem to flow the same.  Can only assume the system as changed since the blog was posted?

 

See attached..

 

I get the Dynamics 365 Administration Centre part by.  

 

Clicking on Admin Centre

Correct, at this time only Canvas Apps support Images but we are working on Model apps for the near future.
