How to Bring Rest API Data into PowerApps Controls

I have created a simple API and want to access it and bring the data into PowerApps controls.

I want to pass a parameter to it and pull back the data.

Planning to do it via a flow.

 

Has anyone done this and can explain the steps to use in the flow?

 

Thank you

Hi @sienna28 ,

Do you want to connect with a custom connector in PowerApps and get value via Flow?

Here's doc for your reference:

Is custom connector the only way? Seems a lot of steps to return data.

I was hoping the JSON could be returned from the flow into PowerApps some other way.

Hi @sienna28 ,

Do you want to parse an HTTP response into JSON format by flow?

Here's a similar issue for your reference:
