Display Image received by custom connector via ASP.NET API

Hi,

I‘m using an Azure hosted ASP.NET API to deliver items from my backend to a PowerApps canvas app. Some items have images assigned to them. In those cases I supply the image ID, to download the image on demand with a GetImage(id) method. In this method I return the content in the HTTPResponse. This works so far. I can call the method from a browser and the image is being displayed. On a mobile device I can not use the URL directly, because the connection is secured by Azure AD. I need to receive the image using the method result of my custom connector. Unfortunately I cannot find a way to populate the image control with string containing the raw image data. How can that to be done?
I could return any other type in the API, if that solves the problem.

Re: Display Image received by custom connector via ASP.NET API

Hi,

 

Per my knowledge, I think PowerApps has no ability to display image with the actual base64 or the binary data.

 

The image is managed to be shown in the URL format.

 

The workaround here should be:

Upload the actual image file into OneDrive for Business, then create an excel file to maintain it:

Add images to Excel from PowerApps

 

Regards,
