PCF - Web API Execute method

We can use all the CRUD Web API methods inside our custom controls, but there is still no SUPPORTED way to call the Execute method inside them. Can we expect this one to be exposed soon or should we hack our way around the non-exposed method available in the Web API object?

@ScottDurow does it also work on canvas apps?

Not applicable

You can use a flow workaround from a Canvas App (make an HTTP request from a flow invoked from a canvas app).

However, that's a premium connector...


It's absolutely necessary for canvas apps to be able to do requests to external APIs (such as to Azure Functions or third party APIs) to enable powerapps as a truly integrating platform for any company. Also, if this is not included in the business basic subscription, then it's not useful for small companies

Advocate II

Really hoping there's a WebApi .execute/run method exposed in the future that links into the business logic components mentioned here.
