HTTP XML Request / Response to JSON

I am working on a Power App project that needs to connect to XML interface.  I am using Postman to export the collection file to be used to create a Custom Connector, but Power Apps does not allow me to import the json collecton file. I assume Power Apps does not allow this because it's not JSON request/response. 
To resolve, I am considering to create a web service to that will translate the requests/responses from XML to JSON and vice-verse between Power Apps and XML Interface. (see below)

I am seeing if anyone has another solution to this issue or if my solution will not work or?Capture.PNG

Re: HTTP XML Request / Response to JSON

Hi @tkerkman,

 

Yes, you are right, currently PowerApps will only handle the OpenAPI file in JSON format, see:

"

Prerequisites

  • A PowerApps account.
  • An OpenAPI file in JSON format, a URL to an OpenAPI definition, or a Postman Collection for your API. If you don't have any of these, we'll provide guidance for you.

Reference: Register and use custom connectors in PowerApps

"

To have your Scenario work, the Coversion Web Service should support RESTful APIs.

 

For XML file format support, please consider submit this as an idea.
