Upload file via Portal to Az Storage

I need a powerapps -portal- walkthrough / guidance.


I want to be able to use portal to upload to azure storage. At this point I would take something in tutorial format that enables me to upload a file to CDS (not notes, a file).


Configure entities properly

Just what do I have to set in the system azure wise 

Just what do I have to configure in entity meta data

Lay out the form properly

Test run, upload file, see results


I've found the docs at and

Hi @jhealy1 ,

Firstly, if you upload files to CDS, it will be saved in CDS notes entity. (all the attachments are saved in notes entity)

So you need to have full permission on notes entity.

Secondly,attachments uploaded to Azure Storage instead of directly to Common Data Service can be managed by using notes in Common Data Service .

To enable attachments from a particular form to be uploaded into Azure Storage, you must add a web resource to that form and you must configure Azure Storage for your organization.

When a file (for example, is uploaded to Azure Storage by using the portal, it is represented by a note on an entity and a placeholder for the attachment.

Here's a doc about it in details for your reference:
