Access local storage in custom connector.

Hello everyone,

Hope you are doing well!

I have a requirement to develop a custom connector that upload file from local storage to the cloud flow.

Here is almost a similar blog i.e How to implement a custom file picker on OneDrive. 

But instead of OneDrive, I need to be able to get access to the local pc storage of the user and the user will be able to pick up any file from the local file storage.

Any reference will be helpful. Thanks in advance.






For this I would recommend to create a power automate flow that is triggered by PowerApps V2, then add a file type variable as input and then use the OneDrive connector to create the file. In your powerapp just leverage the attachment control that you can obtain from adding a form connecting it to a sharepoint list then just take the attachment control from the attachment datacard.


Best regards,



Depending on the use case, an on-premise gateway might be an option as well - On-premises data gateway - Power Automate | Microsoft Docs

Yes, indeed that'll work as this connector does. But, how to implement this in a web API, in order to present data from local file system to user in a custom connector.

That solution is specific to consuming the power app.
