Inserting a dynamic variable from a PowerApps Text Input into an HTTPS REST GET method URI

Hello all,

I would not consider myself a developer in any sense, so I’m sure this relates to my struggle(s) in PowerApps development. 

Use case:  We are being asked to create an app that can call the YouTube API and return specific information for review.  The UI will be from PowerApps and they want the ability to plug in certain keywords and pass those words to the Flows API query string. 

PowerApps Text Input:

Flows:

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thank you for your understanding in my lack of development skills.

 

Michael

Hi @michaelBurch ,

Do you want to use dynamic value in the url of your http request and the dynamic value comes from powerapps?

If so, you just need to use "ask in powerapps" in that dynamic part.

1)In your flow:
Trigger: powerapps

action: http

The url in this action:
common data+ask in powerapps+common data

(use 'ask in powerapps' to replace 'and dynamic variable here')

 2)In powerapps, use data in that textinput to call this flow.

That data will be used as 'ask in powerapps' in your url of http action.

the call flow button's OnSelect:

test1.Run(TextInput1.Text)
//flowname.Run(parameter)
