Created by image in Common Data Service

Hello

 

I am displaying items from a common data service entity in a gallery. I'd like to display the users Office365 profile photo, but I am unsure how to reference it.

 

Can pull the image from the 'Created By' record within the entity in question, directly without using the office365 photos connector?

 

Sincerely,

Svenny

Hi @Svenny,

There's no out-of-the-box method to pull the O365 profile pic to the CDS system user entity. You can do it though with the help of Power Automate, here's the tip: https://crmtipoftheday.com/1378/update-common-data-service-user-photo-from-office-365-profile/.

Once you get the profile images synced up, you can display it on the gallery. Here's an article to help: https://sachinbansal.blog/2018/06/09/powerapp-working-with-images-part-1-create-image-field-in-cds-f... 

Hope this helps!
