call web service inside model driven apps

Hello experts,

 

I was wondering if there is an option to make soap web service call from model driven app.

Example:

User inputs Country and Postal Code and click on save button.

On save, an external web service to be called which takes these two parmeters as input and then return whether the postal code is valid or not.

is this possible in model driven app??

thanks in advance!

Hi @Inpriya01 ,

Yeah, you can. The "HTTP" action in MS Flow could be used to call a web service from a flow. The "HTTP" action looks like below:4.JPG

Please take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

Hi @Inpriya01 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to call a SOAP Web service from a Model-Driven app?

 

If you want to call a SOAP Web service from a Model-Driven app, I afraid that there is no direct way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

As an alternative solution, you could consider custom a workflow within your Entity, use the custom workflow to call the external SOAP web service.

More details about calling external web service using custom workflow, please check the following article:

https://msdynamicscrmblog.wordpress.com/2017/11/06/call-external-cross-domain-rest-apisoap-service-f...

 

Then within your Model-Driven app, add a Business Process Flow. Within the Business Process Flow, add a "Workflow" action to call your above custom workflow. After that, you could call the external web service through the Business Process Flow in your Model-Driven app.

More details about creating a Business Process Flow within Model-Driven app, please check the following article or video:
