I've developed a power app that uses several SharePoint Document Library & list as data sources. The app serves as an interface that ties all the list together in a simple, interface that can be filtered down and searched by document titles. Recently I've gotten a request for the search to look inside the documents. I know that the standard 365 SharePoint search has this ability. I'm trying to replicate this within the power app.
The only way to do this would be to use a SharePoint HTTP Rest call to query the Search Service in SharePoint. There is no easy way to do that from inside Power Apps. But it can be done fairly easily from a Power Automate flow which you can call from Power Apps.
Here's the Microsoft docs on how to call the Search API. You use the code from the REST section.
And here's a walkthrough on how to call a REST api using Power Automate.
