Hi @Pavibhau_3698 ,

 

Yes, you can use Power Automate Desktop to call an internal endpoint as long as the machine running the desktop flow can access the endpoint. 

 

You will need an OPDG (on prem data gateway) if you want to invoke the desktop flow from a cloud flow.

Hi @Pavibhau_3698 ,

 

You can create a custom connector to call an on prem REST endpoint via an on prem data gateway (if you get get one installed)  Have a look here for more info.

Are there any possibilites that I can connect to intranetwork sites through REST API from desktop version of power automate instead of creating custom connectors ???

  1. Change Jenkins configuration from power automate.
  2. Cleanup Jenkins workspace from power automate.
  3. Trigger jenkins build from power automate.
  4. How will you know that build is completed successfully.?

Can we automate the above points from microsoft power automate desktop to Jenkins ???

Hi @Pavibhau_3698 ,

 

I use Azure DevOps so am unfamiliar with Jenkins.

 

However, I would say yes tentatively if:

 

1) There are APIs available to do this

 

OR

 

2) You can do this via the user interface.  The purpose of desktop flows / RPA is to copy/mimic your clicks and keystrokes.  You can record the steps on how to do this and just replicate it.
