Currently we use the HTTP Response Action in Flow to get information back to PowerApps for certain work arounds for things not supported in PowerApps yet, like advanced date filtering to SharePoint lists. Below is a video with an example:
HTTP response is a premium action though which is a problem for clients that don't have stand alone plans. I know that you can also use the split method to return data to PowerApps, but it isn't as easy and reliable as the HTTP response.
a) Is there a way that clients without stand alone plans can request access to the HTTP Response, as it is mainly used to get around currnet limitations in PowerApps?
b) Can HTTP Response be made a standard connector? It will only even respond to whatever is calling it, and the thing that is calling it will already be governed by the licensing prerequisites.
c) Other options would be:
-Parse JSON in Powerapps - https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/Parse-JSON-in-PowerApps/idi-p/359563
-Enhance the Repond to PowerApps Action in Flow to be able to respond with JSON or dynamic schema - https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Respond-to-PowerApps-with-HTTP-Response/idi-p/359569

Hi @Dawidvh ,
1)I'm afraid it'e not supported to people who do not have license that supports Flow.
For now, Flow and PowerApps's license is bundled together. Users that have PowerApps standalone plan will have access to Flow too.
While other licenses don't.
Please pay attention to the new license that we will release in Octor.
Many changes in it.
You could choose license based on your demands.
Here's a doc about it for your reference:
2)For now, http resopnse is not incluing in standard connector.

Anyway, thanks for your advice!
I suggest you express your views on PowerApps Ideas Forum. Your precious feedback will be very helpful for our work.
Thank you for the info, this is what I was afraid of.
I have created an idea for this, please go and vote for it 😉
I have also created another idea to be able to parse JSON directly in PowerApps, which could help with the above requirement as well, as the JSON could be sent to PowerApps with the PowerApps response, so please go and vote for this also.
The problem is that we use this function a lot as work arounds for items that are not supported by PowerApps yet, so it quite a bit problem if this isn't available. Can this discussion be escalated?
