Hi @RajeshLohar ,

 

If you intend to connect to CDS using Power Apps you can follow the guide provided in our documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/add-data-connection

 

To add the data source you need to first select the connection you would like to have (e.g. CDS) and then authenticate in order to have this connection available to use in powerapps.

 

If your answer is more focus to connecting CDS to xamarin try and see if this GitHub post helps: https://github.com/microsoftgraph/msgraph-cds-workrides-sample/blob/master/cds/README.md

 

Hope this information was useful!

 

Regards,

Ricardo
