Convert blob url to data string


I have a flow which can currently convert a data uri (provided by an image captured by the camera control within powerapps)

into a data string so i can create a file inside a Sharepoint Document Library.

However, when I use the attach picture control it is sent to my flow as a blob . How do I convert this blob to a data string (which I am currently doing for data uri's) inside a flow action?

Or if there's another way, please let me know! 

Kind regards,

Re: Convert blob url to data string

Hi @JanSomers91,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow’s configuration?

There is no way to convert a blob into a data string in Microsoft Flow currently, if you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:


In addition, please check and see if the following thread would help in your scenario:
