Show composite data in dynamic dropdown

Hi,

I am creating a custom connector for Power Automate, to connect to my APIs. My custom action requires users to select from a dropdown: the items in this dropdown are filled dynamically from my backend, using x-ms-dynamic-values extension in my connector schema.

Currently, the dropdown is able so show only "string" data: I would like to make the dropdown to be able to show additional information along with the "string". For an example, when I create a Send an email (V2) action in Office 365 Outlook connector and try fill in the To field, it shows my user display name, profile image and the designation:

I want to achieve something similar with my dynamic list. Any help will be much appreciated.

Warm regards,

~Surjya.

Hi @SurjyaSahoo 

 

You may need to construct the string data combined with all other information via API. Looks like the change is required to do in API server side.

 

Thanks

@abm thanks for responding. Could you also suggest, what would be the format of the string? And how do I show the profile image?

Hi @SurjyaSahoo 

 

Yes thats  tricky one. I was thinking any image url. Can't you construct as a html tag img src? Not sure that is possible or not.
