Power App Component Framework with ArcGis Embed

Hey All


I have been working to see if I can create an embed of an arcgis map but I find I am having a hard time with typescript errors. For example when using the typescript library of arcgis-js-api it --  "Can't resolve 'esri/Maps'".  I have attached a standard html / javascript implementation example.


Thanks for any help on this.


Many thanks Derek - it'd be great to have some code that we know "should" work!

Yes it all works very nicely in the npm test harness.

I've tried a public web map on, and a private map on our own IWA-secured portal. Again, both work in the test harness.

I haven't used codepen but will think about what I can share and how!

Does this code work in your situation?  @aventham77 


import { IInputs, IOutputs } from "./generated/ManifestTypes";
import DataSetInterfaces = ComponentFramework.PropertyHelper.DataSetApi;
import { any } from "prop-types";
import { watchFile } from "fs";

  mapView: __esri.MapView;
  private _mapContainer: HTMLDivElement;
  private _longitude: string;
  private _latitude: string;
  private contextObj: ComponentFramework.Context<IInputs>;

   * Empty constructor.
  constructor() {}

   * Used to initialize the control instance. Controls can kick off remote server calls and other initialization actions here.
   * Data-set values are not initialized here, use updateView.
   * @param context The entire property bag available to control via Context Object; It contains values as set up by the customizer mapped to property names defined in the manifest, as well as utility functions.
   * @param notifyOutputChanged A callback method to alert the framework that the control has new outputs ready to be retrieved asynchronously.
   * @param state A piece of data that persists in one session for a single user. Can be set at any point in a controls life cycle by calling 'setControlState' in the Mode interface.
   * @param container If a control is marked control-type='standard', it will receive an empty div element within which it can render its content.

Hi @dkbollig - many thanks for sharing your code!

I'll definitely give this a whirl; I have a couple of questions though if you don't mind...

After an initial skim through, I'm not immediately clear on why you need to bring the jQuery package in - could you explain that?

Is this code working in an actual PowerApp? If so, hearty congratulations to you as that feels like a real breakthrough from where I'm sitting!

Did you find that basing the mapview on a webmap didn't work for you, or did you just switch to this approach out of preference?

Unfortunately, I'm having the same experience with the code you posted @dkbollig - it all runs well in the test harness, but when I import the built component and add it into an actual PowerApp, I just end up with an empty map object, with no layers loaded.

My suspicion is that some sort of security restriction is preventing the ESRI JS API from making any "fetch" requests.

Hey Andy


Would you be using a model driven app or a canvas app?


I have been using the model driven app for power apps.


Thanks Derek

Aha... I've been trying to create a canvas app.

Thanks for letting me know - I guess that's the clincher!

@dkbollig & @aventham77 - have you had success after all?
I'm working on a project where the customer requests integration of ESRI geolocation map within Dynamics and their Dynamics solution is not available anymore, so I wondered about the PCF route.

Frequent Visitor

Hi @ZePowerDiver - I didn't make any big breakthroughs with my canvas app, but as I understand it, @dkbollig had the above code working in a model-driven app.

Hey all, I was wondering if any of you had any luck with this, it seems a shame for our org to have both AGOL licenses and M365 but not be able to use the api in our apps.
