Incorporate XML/JSON search box

Good Afternoon,

I have built a app for the purpose of being a one stop for documenting and being able to locate information for daily job needs. Part of the documentation is notating the employee you spoke with which we have a search engine that we can input their phone id and it returns the employee info. That is how we get their info then copy to the app at the moment but was trying to see if I could incorporate into the app. I know the location of the search and it seems to be a XMLHttprequest with the following parameters. Is there a way to incorporate into the app? 

filter=(contains(Search_String,'Phone_ID/Name') and ACTIVESTATUS ne 'Inactive')&$select=Full_Name,First_Name,Last_Name,Job_Title,Phone_Name,Phone_ID&$top=5

Re: Incorporate XML/JSON search box

Hello,

 

I am not aware of any OOB way of incorporate XML Http requests within Canvas Apps.

 

You should look at triggering flows from your canvas app based on drop down selected value or any other action within your app. 

If your HTTP request connects to CDS instance, then you can leverage CDS connector in your flow.

If its non-CDS, then you can leverage HTTP request connector in your flow or create a custom connector.

 

Please refer to the links below for more information:
