Noticed there is no option to consume rest api as data source while building powerapps.
Is it available and i am missing or is there in plan in near future
Please check this tutorial
I have created a restful web api wth swagger enabled. I am able to create a connection with swagger document.
But in design mode after i set items source to specific get method and associate few properties to internal fields in design time and when trying to run in design time (https://us.preprod.create.powerapps.com/studio/?action=edit&source=portal&app-id=%2Fproviders%2FMicr...), i see output is not getting rendered. But when i save my work and try to open over web link
(https://ms.web.powerapps.com/webplayer/app?source=portal&screenColor=RGBA(0%2c176%2c240%2c1)&appId=%...) it works rendering data.
I have attached relevant screenshots.
How can get it work in design time.
