Creating CDS Entity and adding fields, restricted to 1 image type?

Created new Entity in CDS PowerApps and added new field that's an Image file type, but when I wanted to create another field as Image type the option is no longer available?

Re: Creating CDS Entity and adding fields, restricted to 1 image type?

Hi Andries,

 

Each entity only allows for 1 type of the image attribute. The schema name is always EntityImage.

 

See the documentation here and here. While not explicitly stating an entity can only contain 1 image you can read between the lines that it's main use is for decorative purposes on an entity, like a profile picture on the contact.

 

You could store images as attachments to records.

At this time only 1 image data type can be added to an entity. In the near future we will be providing preview functionality that will allow the use of multiple image data types for Power Apps.

I realize this is an older post, but we just released a preview for enhanced image support this includes support for multiple image fields per entity. It is available for canvas now and model soon. See these blog posts for more information.
