Adding variables to a Resource URL in a custom connector



I'm attempting to create a custom connector to sharepoint in flow so that I can get access to the $Expand operator in GetItems().

How can you add a variable to a resource URL in a custom connector? See the screenshot below.


I'd like to place a variable in the GetbyTitle( ) Portion of the url and ideally tie that to a drop down list of sharepoint lists like the native integration allows

Hi @JShood,


I afraid that there is no any way to adding variables to a Resource URL in a custom connector in microsoft flow currently.

I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.


If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

You can use variables defined in curly braces when setting up your Connector's requests. Flow will automatically add any value within { } as a parameter. You can then edit them to define things such as their type and whether or not they are required.
