Automatic data conversion for custom connectors?

From my API I get data where decimal numbers are formatted as strings and dates are formatted as the number of seconds since Jan 1, 1970. In my flows I use formulas to convert the data but those introduce the possibility of simple mistakes that can cause major issues.

 

The data from the API looks like this:

 

{
    "amount":"123.45",
    "date":1620937460
}

 

 

My goal is to add something to my custom connector that can tell Power Automate to do the conversions automatically so that I don't have to use formulas in my flow to convert the data. Is this functionality in the current version of Power Automate?

Hi @sean_cale 

 

I'm afraid this is not achievable, you cant add something to your wizard where you create the custom connector, the creation of the custom connector only admits consuming the API.

 

In this link you can find more information about custom connectors.

Hope this helps you.
