Power App / FLOW for UPS retrieval

I am creating a Power App and using Automate with it for certain functionality.  I need UPS and FEDEX status data for my app.  I paid a programmer to write a Python script to retrieve the data from UPS and FedX given a tracking number.  The python script works, however I did not think about the fact that I can only run the script on a local machine, not the cloud.  Anyone with ideas how I can solve this simply?  I am using Dataverse for the database portion of my app which will have the tracking number input as one of the fields.

Hi @astrontelstar 

 

You have your answer right there. You can use Microsoft Graph to save the information that you get from your Python script. With Power Automate, you can fetch the information since it's stored in a common layer accessible from all the POwer Platform..

 

Can you please check if and let me know if you have any questions?

 

Cheers
Manuel

Thank you for your quick reply.   Could you be just a hair more specific?  I'm not following?

HI @astrontelstar 

 

The easiest way would be for the Python script to write into the information directly in the same place where your app can access it. If it's not possible, you need to define a gateway, so you have a way to fetch the data from a local server.

 

Here's how to set up a gateway.
