Building Custom Connectors

There are more than a thousand public connectors available, but that is a small percentage of the thousands of APIs that are published. Creating custom connectors allows you to have a connector experience for any of these APIs. In this course, we will look at how to configure the custom connector so you or users in your organization can connect to the API just as easy as the public connectors. Included in the course is a deep dive hands on lab as well as a test your knowledge assessment.


Basic understanding of PowerApps and Flow connectors would be helpful. Hands on lab requires developer knowledge and at least a trial of Visual Studio to complete.

Hands on lab

This course includes an in-depth hands on lab that will demonstrate how to build a secure connector that queries CDS data and is used by a PowerApps app. You will need Visual Studio and an Azure subscription to complete the lab.
