Announcing General Availability of Custom Connectors in Solutions as well as Environment Variable Secrets
We are thrilled to announce General Availability (GA) of a few connector related features within the Power Platform ecosystem:
These first two advancements empower you to extend the capabilities of the Power Platform and enhance your application lifecycle management (ALM) processes.
Firstly, we are excited to bring custom connectors in solutions out of public preview and into General Availability. While Azure Logic Apps, Microsoft Power Automate, and Microsoft Power Apps offer over 1,000 connectors to connect to Microsoft and verified services, you may want to communicate with services that aren’t available as prebuilt connectors. Now your custom connectors can be easily transferred between environments via solutions. This includes the GA of custom code within your custom connectors which enables you to transform request and response payloads beyond the scope of existing policy templates.
Additionally, we are delighted to announce the General Availability of support for environment variables using Azure Key Vault secrets. By leveraging Azure Key Vault, you can securely store and manage sensitive information, such as API keys, credentials, and connection strings. With environment variables, you can seamlessly access these secrets within your Power Automate Flows and custom connectors, ensuring that sensitive information remains protected and reducing the risk of accidental exposure.
We would also like to announce GA of the Power Platform connector activity logs. The activity logging feature now allows you to view events related to connections and custom connectors.
