Is there a way to make some sort of API connection to the forum itself?

Is there a way to make some sort of API connection to the forum itself?

 

I would like to create a flow that adds my youtube videos about Flow in the Video Gallery in the forum. Was wondering is there is an API to connect to the forum.

 

Thanks

Hi @ThatAPIGuy,

 

YouTube is a standard connector of Microsoft Flow, you could use trigger such as “When I upload a video” in your flow.

However, there is no available standard actions could be used to post video on Microsoft Forum. Please consider creating Custom connectors to upload the videos on Microsoft Forum. The following doc could be your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/developer/register-custom-api

By the way, you could also submit a request on Flow Ideas Forum about posting messages on Microsoft Forum using flow:

Hi @v-yamao-msft

 

Thank you for the response. 

 

Any help/ guidelines around connecting to Microsoft Forum would be helpful. The documentation doesn't exactly help for such scenarios.
