Hi @Suchism ,


Please find this blog to see how to call web API form Portal.

Hope this helps.


thanks for the link !

If most of the dataset is from non-CDS source , is it advisable to use ajax calls everytime read/write operations are performed within portal(recommended way ?) . Or through a custom control .js file which internally calls apis ? Is there a way to use connectors(within Portal) as in Canvas apps .
