Custom Connectors. Why only 1 Custom Connector, Microsoft?

Hello,

 

I have been working in powerapps now for about 6 months and I am very satisfied with all the features that it has to offers. I was wondering however, why the basic office 365 plan has only one custom connector available? Custom connectors are a way for companies to truely specialize their product and meet their customer needs. I was wondering what the explanation behind this logic is and why we wouldn´t be allowed to have maybe 5-10 so that our customers could also use the connectors without having to pay for the additional fee on top of paying for our work.

 

Kind Regards,

 

YungHelgi

Re: Custom Connectors. Why only 1 Custom Connector, Microsoft?

Hi @YungHelgi,

 

 

The idea with the included of capabilities within Office 365 is primarily to enable customers that already use Office 365 in their day-to-day to leverage PowerApps to build apps on top of their Office 365 data.

 

Building and using more complex and custom apps and workflows that (as you say) leverage multiple custom connectors is one of the main purposes of the PowerApps Plan 1 offering.

 

Hope that helps,

James

Adding Staff @jo  on the license part.

 

From my own point, this should be related to the resource management under the tenant resource accross the whole company.

As the custom connector is allowed to be created one for each user.

 

Please check the following page for the details about the license related:

Did the plans for basic Office 365 users change?  It appears from the licenses page we no longer get 1 custom connector with Powerapps and would require Plan 1 or Plan 2....
