Problem with data source MSNWeather

Hi all,

 

I have a problem with my app, I created a new app and connect with datasource: MSNWeather (MSNElTiempo in my region).

After that, I have on an icon OnSelect property: UpdateContext({Weather: MSNElTiempo.CurrentWeather("MyCity";"Metric")}) and in the label text property: Weather.responses.weather.current.uv

 

The problem is that the current uv index or curren uv description don't show the real data, because if I see on the web page: https://www.msn.com/es-us/el-tiempo/pronostico/Quito,Pichincha,Ecuador/we-city?iso=EC&form=PRWLAS&q=... i have other data.

 

Please help with this issue, that I don't know if is a problem with MSN Weather or if is a problem with the API on powerapps.

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Problem with data source MSNWeather

Hi @dvalenzuela ,

I've made a similar test and met the same problem like your description.

Here's my test:

1)test current uv in New York

UpdateContext({Weather:  MSNWeather.CurrentWeather("New York","Metric")}); Weather.responses.weather.current.uv

The result is : 0

While in https://www.msn.com/en-us/weather, the current uv in New York is 7.

2)test current uv in Tokyo

UpdateContext({Weather:  MSNWeather.CurrentWeather("Tokyo","Metric")}); Weather.responses.weather.current.uv

The result is :4

And in https://www.msn.com/en-us/weather, the current uv in Tokyo is 4.

 

So, the weather report is not very precise in PowerApps indeed.

I think this is connector itself's limit.

I suggest you express your views on PowerApps Ideas Forum. Your precious feedback will be very helpful for our work.
