Connecting Power Apps with Tableau

Hello everyone. I am new to Microsoft, but I did a lot of research, but what I couldn't find out is: how to connect Microsoft Power Apps and Tableau. I only have an assumption: Could it be possible to connect the Custom API for PowerApps (https://powerapps.microsoft.com/uk-ua/blog/building-a-custom-api-for-powerapps-using-azure-app-servi...) with the Web Data Connector (WDC) (https://tableau.github.io/webdataconnector/docs/) to use the REST API as a data source in tableau?

Kind regards

Dominic

Hi Dominic,

Welcome to the forum. Since Tableau already has a well published REST api you can simply build a custom connector to call the API. Custom connector is simply a proxy that defines how to interact with the REST api. Here is a documentation on how to do it: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/custom-connectors/define-blank

 

Once you build the custom connector I encourage you to leverage our Independent Publisher program to submit the connector for everyone: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/new-connectors-through-the-independent-publisher-connector-pro...

 

Here is a person requesting this feature to Tableau.
