RSS - How to show a feed in a powerapps textbox/form etc

Can someone explain how Im able to show a entry/entries from a RSS feed?

 

I see there are commands RSS.ListFeedItems etc - but no guidance on how to use them.

 

RSS.Listfeeditems suggests it should be RSS.ListFeedItems(URL) but entering something such as RSS.ListFeedItems(HTTPS://RSS.Xxxxx.rss) etc just says the format is wrong?

Well i feel kind of silly, but apparently we just needed to enclose our Feed URL in quotes ( " "). Items are coming back for me now.

Hi @JC75,

 

Here is documentation that will help you with the RSS connector in PowerApps:

Re: RSS - How to show a feed in a powerapps textbox/form etc

Hi Mona

thanks for the link, but that document still doesn’t explain how on a PowerApps form you display an RSS feed item. I’m feeling I also need to do something with flow by that documentation - which seems a bit over complicated.

equally it in PowerApps the syntax fails on the HTML following that documentation.

in sharepoint page site I simply place the coded HTML string and it displays the RSS feed and item, I just want to simply display one item from a feed on a form, in a text/label box or something similar and it refresh very 40 minutes.

Some more help and a guidance/example page would be helpful like for other elements.

Still would really like some help or examples of how to achieve this? 

 

Is is it possible to show a and filter a entry from an RSS feed on a PowerApps form, that can be refreshed every 40 mins or so? 

 

I want to be able to display weather METARS for a specific site. Something I can do on a SharePoint page.

Any update on this? I am running into a similar issue. Is the issue with having https?

I have the same problem and would like some guidance.

 

I even used the example URL from the power apps tool tip.

Hey JC75

 

I've tested the RSS feed from the PowerApps blog and it seems to work.

 

RSS.ListFeedItems("https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/feed/") if you make that the items in a gallery you should start to see something. I would recomened that you create a button and collect the RSS feed, that way you can see the structure in the collection and better naviagte the structure.

 

Let me know, happy to jump on a call to help you remove this blocker.
