Common parameters for a custom connector

Hello everyone,


I am creating a custom connector for my service. There are few common parameters that is used in all triggers and actions. Is there a way to get these parameters while creating a connection in flow and reuse it whenever required for the actions and triggers?


I see an option "References" in the custom connector definition that might be useful. But there is no option to add a parameter? please suggest.

Re: Common parameters for a custom connector

Hi @Dinesh 


While creating the action for a specific request, you can add the parameters directly in the url when the request is created as "Import from Sample" and this way it will add them in parameters, if you will go inside each parameter, there is property for default value which will be used when this parameters is not passed while calling the action.
Hope this Helps!

Re: Common parameters for a custom connector

Thanks @yashag2255 


I have added these parameters in the URL with {} and user can enter them in the flow. Since these parameters are common for all the actions and triggers of the connector for a particular user, if the user wants to use an action 3 times in the flow then user has to enter the same parameters (same value) 3 times. Is there a way to save these common parameters and pass it to the other actions of the connector internally? By this way user dont have to repeat the same entries again.


Btw, what is the "References"option? How can i add/test this option?
