OAUTH 2.0 Implicit Flow Authentication - Custom Connector

Hi!

 

Do custom connector support OAUTH implicit flow authentication without using a Client Secret? I don't see an option to use Implicit flow, it seems the client secret is a mandatory information. Could you please confirm this

The plan is to secure an API using Azure AD app and then create a custom connector using the AD App.

Re: OAUTH 2.0 Implicit Flow Authentication - Custom Connector

Hi @ashiqf ,

If you use Oauth 2.0 type to fill in authentication, then you need to use client id and client secret.

If you choose other types of authentication, some of them not need client id and client secret.

For example, Basic Authentication. This kind only needs user provide the username and password to create the connection.

If you want this, please create a custom connector configured with an authentication type of Basic Authentication.

Here's a doc about custom connector Authentication types for your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/custom-connectors/connection-parameters

Re: OAUTH 2.0 Implicit Flow Authentication - Custom Connector

Hi @ashiqf ,

Do you mean that you do not know what to fill in client id and client server?

Actually, yo do not need another client server.

You could use Azure Active Directory with a custom connector in Power Automate.

 You just need to enable authentication in Azure Active Directory, register one of the Resource Manager APIs as a custom connector, and then connect to it in Power Automate.

Then you could use the information in Azure Active Directory to fill in client id and client server.

Here are two  docs about how to do this in details for your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/custom-connectors/azure-active-directory-authentication

https://community.dynamics.com/365/b/sachinbansalmicrosoft/posts/powerapps-secure-your-azure-functio...

  • Under Client id, enter the AAD application ID value you copied earlier.

  • For client secret, use value you copied earlier.

Re: OAUTH 2.0 Implicit Flow Authentication - Custom Connector

Hi @v-yutliu-msft,

Thanks for your response. To answer your question first

Do you mean that you do not know what to fill in client id and client server? No, I've created a connector using clientid and secret from AAD app. I would like to know if a custom connector supports Implicit grant flow authentication as its supported in PowerApps portal? With this authentication pattern, its not required to pass client secret.

Ref: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/portals/oauth-implicit-grant-flow

 

Hope I've made it clear.
