One of the biggest features of the Power Platform is the ability to connect to, work with and deploy data to and from almost any source.

It no longer matters whether your information resides in an on-premise database, a 32-bit desktop application, a third-party website or within Office 365. Accessing, interacting and processing your business rules - no matter where your data comes from - has never been easier. 

What's even better is that you don't need to be a developer to do it any more. Microsoft now provides tools for the citizen developer to use. Making the task more accessible and configurable than ever before.  

So long as you have the right permissions to the data you need, a little knowledge (which you'll gain via this playbook) and a methodical approach, paying for costly transformation projects on your business system before you interact with it will become a thing of the past. 

In this playbook, you'll learn about one way you can do this. The example you'll use is connecting to a third-party API (Application Programming Interface) to retrieve data.

In this case, it's Google but it could be any system or website with an API. We'll step through the following concepts: 

  • Microsoft Power Platform Connectors
  • How to Create Custom Connectors
  • How to integrate a Power Automate Flow with the Google Places API
Google Places

In this playbook, a very simple example has been used to demonstrate the steps needed to interact with Google API's.  You'll provide a search string and it will return a named 'Place' to you.  Using the knowledge of each step that you will gain, you will quickly be able to experiment with much more complex data retrieval and service interactions.
