Create a connection to SharePoint from PowerApps
Create a connection to either SharePoint Online or on-premises SharePoint so that you can generate an app automatically or build one from scratch.
If you're unfamiliar with PowerApps, see Introduction to PowerApps.
As of this writing, PowerApps supports custom lists but not libraries. In addition, you can show data in some types of columns, such as Choice and Picture, but you can't update that data. For more information, see Known issues.
Specify a SharePoint connection
If you haven't already signed up, sign up for PowerApps.
Sign in to powerapps.com using the same credentials that you used to sign up.
In the left navigation bar, click or tap Manage, and then click or tap Connections.
Near the upper-right corner, click or tap New connection.
In the list of connections, click or tap SharePoint.
Follow the steps in either of these procedures, which appear later in this topic:
Connect to a SharePoint Online site
Click or tap Connect directly (cloud services), and then click or tap Add connection.
Go to Next steps at the end of this topic.
Connect to an on-premises SharePoint site
Click or tap Connect using on-premises data gateway.
Gateways and on-premises connections can only be created and used in the user's default environment.
Specify your user name and your password.
If your credentials include a domain name, specify it as Domain\Alias.
If you don't have an on-premises data gateway installed, install one, and then click or tap the icon to refresh the list of gateways.
Under Choose a gateway, click or tap the gateway that you want to use, and then click or tap Add connection.
- Generate an app automatically based on a list that you specify. The app will have three screens by default: one each for browsing records, displaying details about a single record, and creating or updating a record.
- Build an app from scratch. This topic was written for Excel, but the same principles apply to SharePoint.
