Automatically fill SharePoint Online list fields from an internally hosted API

Parekh, Soham 40 Reputation points


I'm interested in customizing a SharePoint Online list entry such that when a user fills one field, the other fields are filled automatically with data from an API hosted internally. How can I achieve this with SharePoint Online?

I'm looking into form customizers, but I'd like to confirm that I'm on the right path, or if there's a better solution.

    Hi @Parekh, Soham,

    Since you could use spfx extension to reach your requirement, but I would recommend you to use Power app. In this scenario, power app is simpler and more convenient than spfx. You could refer to the following nice article

    Also you could use extension to build form customizer. Extension has a higher degree of freedom and implements more complex functions.
