Getting PowerApps Status info in your apps! Solution

I cant find where I asked this before, but I was told there was not a way to do it.  Well, thats just a challenge to find a way!  

 

I was looking for a way to get the PowerApps/Flow status messages to be in PA, and to give the user some quick access or even some indication of any issues with the system.  Well, I found a way.  It involves Flow.  

 

Scenario:  Get the status contents of https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/support/ into PowerApps, and drive some indicators for the user.

Then, with the text in Powerapps, the HTML can be parsed into the parts that matter.

 

This statement gleans just the text related to the status of the system:

 

PlainText(Mid(GetPAStatus.pastatushtml,
Find("PowerApps Support",(GetPAStatus.pastatushtml))+17,
Find("Search for support",GetPAStatus.pastatushtml)-Find("PowerApps Support",(GetPAStatus.pastatushtml))-18-17)
)

 

The above statement makes this web page:
