Unable to Resolve Schema


Hi, I haven't figured out how to fix a problem that I have been running into regarding how to resolve the schema of a Reference.

I am creating a custom connector using a Web API and Power Apps cannot resolve the references it uses. Here is the error that is being displayed:


And here is an example of one of the references it cannot resolve:


I have been stuck on this problem for a long time and am hoping someone has run into and solved this problem.

Re: Unable to Resolve Schema

Hi @Anonymous,


What is the Open API file you have uploaded when create the connector?

Which should be a .JSON file.

PowerApps use that file to work with the API request and the response, and that file is also call swagger file, which is used to explain the API in a language which could be understood by PowerApps.

But I don't think the image you posted should be a workable swagger file.

If you would like to use the custom connector, then you should give it a swagger file.

Another thread for your reference:

How do I make a Swagger JSON file?
