Create a form that connects with an external Web API
I am new to Power Apps and Power Pages. I am attempting to build a simple power page that will had a text box and a button on the page. The user will in put text in the text field and click the button. The action I would like to be performed on button click is to pass the enter text to an existing web service and to either redirect to a new page showing the results from the web service call (or possibly within the same page).
I am struggling to determine where to start.
I am looking at the basic form and advanced form but it is asking to be based on a dataverse table.
Would the web service call be some form of a flow trigger by the button?
I am simply looking for pointers on where to dig into documentation. I have been googling this all morning and I seem to go down rabbit holes that end up having nothing to do what i am looking for.
