Create a PowerApp that acts as middleware?

NEW USER ALERT...

 

Is it possible to create a PowerApp that acts as a middleware?

Or multiple apps that connect to their own data sources but can communicate with each other?

For example, create a PowerApp that connects to BOTH Salesforce and SAP so I can move data directly from Salesforce to SAP.

 

Thanks

Re: Create a PowerApp that acts as middleware?

Hi Rstout,

 

It can be easily done by adding Microsoft Flow to you app. Do you have a trial or subscription of Microsoft Flow?


About Microsoft Flow, please check this documentation for more details:
https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/getting-started/

 

You could add the flow to your app, then when you click a button on your app, the data will be saved from one data source to another data source.


A Flow template for a reference:
https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/galleries/public/templates/1b4fb8ac15cd40c490db8c08505a612a/for-new...


And also about how to start a flow in an app, please see this documentation:
https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/tutorials/using-logic-flows/

 

Currently, Salesforce is an available connection for PowerApps, but SAP is not available yet. I have seen an idea about connector to SAP, you could vote this idea at here:
