Inserting image into CDS image field with flow

Hi Guys,

Now with the "Image" datatype available in CDS, I need to populate this field from powerautomate flow. The idea is to:

- Publish a flow with http trigger (json input)

- Third party applications will call the flow with two input fields: record id and the image as "binary string".

 

I am not sure how to accomplish this.

- Are the images saved in base64 format?

 

Looking forward.

- S

You can use the below CDS Action

You need to pass the content as JSON format as below:

{

"$content-type": "image/png",
"$content":"base64string"

}

Hi @Mira_Ghaly ,

 

Just one more question. Now that I can insert images and files, I was keen to know how to delete these. Composing a JSON with $content empty string ("") or "null" doesn't actually delete the image/file field (please refer the following two images)
