Connectors help make it easier for app and flow makers to connect to other apps, data, and devices in the cloud. Learn how to configure and use custom connectors with Microsoft Power Apps, Microsoft Power Automate, and Microsoft Azure Logic Apps.
Custom connectors can provide access to custom or third-party APIs that are accessible via public endpoints. In this module, learn how to configure custom connectors with authenticated APIs in Microsoft Power Platform.
Extend connector functionality in Microsoft Power Automate and Microsoft Azure Logic Apps, where a system needs to respond to the changes in the underlying data or services. In this module, you learn how to expand the functionality of custom connectors with the trigger definitions.
Policies allow you to modify the behavior of a custom connector at runtime. You can use policies to perform data conversion, route requests, set parameter values, and more. You can configure policies directly in the custom connector API properties file before import, or you can do it from the maker portal in the custom connector designer by applying policy templates.
You can define extensions to OpenAPI to configure specific features that are supported by custom connectors in Microsoft Power Platform. This module covers authentication, actions, and triggers that are used with OpenAPI connectors.
The use case for your custom connector will determine how you want to manage the life cycle as it evolves. The primary scenarios are single environment usage, multiple environments usage, and open sourcing/certifying.
