connectionParameters section (in apiProperties.json) is dropped when Custom Connector is imported from Github

Hi there,

 

Few weeks ago we have published a Custom Connector on github: https://github.com/microsoft/PowerPlatformConnectors/tree/master/custom-connectors/NSF%20Data 

 

This Connector is using dynamic host policy. The policy is correctly implemented in apiProperties.json with parameter definition  in "connectionParameters" and it's use in "policyTemplateInstances".

 

However, if I create a new Custom Connector using "Import from Github" option the Host parameter is missing in the "New connection" dialog.

First I checked the Policy "Dynamic host". It is available under "3. Definition".

Then I downloaded the apiProperties.json using paconn and discovered that the "connectionParameters" section is missing there. The "policyTemplateInstances" section is OK.

 

I manually added the missing "connectionParameters" (took from Github) and updated the Connector with "paconn" and the Connector works as expected - the Dynamic Host parameter is present in the dialog.

I think it's a bug in the "Import from Github". Can this be fixed please?

 

Thanks,

Nick
