IP Address for HTTP calls

Hello,

I created a flow to integrate with a few government services(HTTP POST request), but now the government has changed the security policy. We need to provide the static IP in advance, from where we are requesting their API services.

I was able to find some list from the forums, but a bit confused. In the flow documentation, it is mentioned that for HTTP calls, the request is initiated from Azure logic apps and we need to give that IP.

Does anyone here handle this situation? which all  IPs I need to provide?

Also, Flow IP are a range of IPs like 50-100 IPs in total, this also a problem as I need to ask the GOV services to save this many IPs for each service.

 

Any help is really appreciated.

Nijo

Flow is a cloud service, so providing an IP endpoint list likely isn't possible. What you could do however, is create your own custom API and host it utilziing Postman.

You could host it as a VM or web service with a dedicated IP and use Postman as an API route-through, by calling the government API to Postman and then calling your custom Postman API from Flow.

with regards to your solution. Could you give me more information on this. Im a complete novice but able to run an api through postman but hitting the same problem with regards to IP address being blocked. The solution you have proposed looks perfect. Do you have a guide for this?

 

Thanks
