In a 23-minute focused demonstration, Eickhel introduces the concept of connectors in Power Platform. He lays out the steps to create a new custom connector and explains how it's possible to use custom code, specifically written in C#, to extend the functionality of the connector. This, for instance, would aid in validating a payload against a RegEx schema.
Eickhel then illustrates his thought process for sourcing the appropriate code snippet using ChatGPT. This demonstration took place during the Microsoft 365 & Power Platform weekly call on the 22nd of August, 2023. Eickhel Mendoza, from Intelequia, was the presenter.
The Microsoft 365 & Power Platform community provides an array of resources, including a Unified Sample gallery and a dedicated community on YouTube.
A special note was made to emphasize that "Sharing is caring!" and expresses appreciation for the attentive audience.
The concept of connectors in Power Platform is a crucial one, serving as bridges between different services or applications. These can be customized to your needs - as demonstrated by Eickhel - by using custom written C# code. This customization can enhance the functionality of the connectors, providing advanced capabilities such as payload validation against a RegEx schema. One fascinating application involved ChatGPT, which Eickhel used to identify the right code snippet for his purpose. It's these kinds of innovative ideas and applications that keep the Microsoft 365 & Power Platform community continuously evolving and improving.
This text features a 23-minute developer-focused presentation by Eickhel, who explains the concepts of connectors in Microsoft's Power Platform and the process for creating a new custom connector. He provides all information step by step and also demonstrates that it's possible to extend the functionality of these connectors using custom code in C#, such as for validating a payload against a schema (RegEx). Eickhel then shares his thought process using ChatGPT in order to extract the appropriate code snippet. The demo was originally presented in the Microsoft 365 & Power Platform weekly call on August 22, 2023.
