Canvas App and external APIs

Hi

 

Does anyone have any links to useful documentation or videos about using an external API with a Canvas App?

 

My google searches aren't coming up with that I need

 

Thanks
Lee

Thanks @Nogueira1306 but do you have anything for Canvas Apps that doesn't involves Power Automate?

Hi @lee-martin ,

Connect your external API with custom connector and use it in your power apps.

 

FYI, including reference link.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/register-custom-api

 

If it answers your question, kindly give kudo and accept it as solution.

Prakash

Thanks, does it work the same way as if you where using the dataverse for example?

@lee-martin ,

Dataverse is in built connector. You can create canvas apps using dataverse.

Prakash

I know, that is not what I'm asking.

 

When I use the dataverse I get a list of available fields if I'm creating a form for example.

 

Does working with a custom api work in a similar way?

@lee-martin ,

You can call custom API as a function to do some action as per the documentation.

 

I think you can't use it to create form.

 

 

Regards,

Prakash

So I build the form myself and tie it all in with function code?
