Invoke Web Service - Authorization

Hey folks!


I'm looking for some advice about authorization for a request I'm making in Power Automate Desktop using the action 'Invoke Web Service'. I'm using this request to get information from Dataverse.

I've currently set up this request using OAuth2.0 with the Grant Type set to Implicit and I've hardcoded a token value into the header. I'm pretty green when it comes to authorization, so I'm just wondering if that's the best way to use OAuth2.0 to get info from Dataverse to PAD? I'm also concerned this token will expire and how to go about handling that. If I should set this up differently please let me know. And if you know how I can refresh the token automatically somehow, advice would be great.

Make sure that you've gone over your API's documentation with a fine tooth comb.  Some require encoding, some don't.

Check your Invoke Web Service step as well, make sure that you have the Encode request body selected or not selected as appropriate:
