use Azure function with images from CDS

I hope somebody can help me and Im not using the wrong section 🙂

Im trying to implement my Azure function to PowerApps. The function combines two images which are located in my azure storage.

this is already working with static items from my own azure data storage. and now im trying to implement it to my powerapps with this tutorial


I want to Run my Azure function like in this tutorial 

AzureFunction.RunThis(Input1:ThisItem.image1, Input2:PictureBox.Image; Output:ThisItem.OUTputfield)


I  Think I need a little fine tuning on my C# Azure Function itself and I need to setup a json.


This is how I call my function at the moment


        public async static Task RunASync([HttpTrigger(AuthorizationLevel.Function, "get", "post", Route = null)] HttpRequest req,
         [Blob("test", FileAccess.ReadWrite)] CloudBlobContainer blobContainer,
            [Blob("test/out3.png", FileAccess.ReadWrite)] CloudBlockBlob outputBlob, ILogger log)



I need this function because common data service still cant handle transparency and this is my workaround.

Re: use Azure function with images from CDS

Hi @Macwin ,

Could you tell me your data source?

I'm afraid there's no connector has this kind of function:

AzureFunction.RunThis(Input1:ThisItem.image1, Input2:PictureBox.Image; Output:ThisItem.OUTputfield)

What's more, if you want to use json, you could try this formula:

JSONDataStructure [, Format ] )

Then the data in the data source will be transfer to json.

Tables, records, and primitive values are supported, arbitrarily nested.

Here's a doc about this function for your reference:

Re: use Azure function with images from CDS

Yeah. I know there isnt a connector for this. Thats why Im going to build a custom connector/api like in this linked tutorial from my first post.

My datasource is actually a picturebox and a peninput. And I want to upload with my connector/api (which composite this two images) to a cds image field.
