    Hi Mark,

    Thank-you for your message, we'll look into this. In the meantime, have you considered using OData or is that not a viable option for your use-case? 

    Kind Regards,

    Thanks for the reply, yes using OData already but it's messy and not as 'cool' as using Power Automate :). It would of course open other integration possibility via Power Apps as well if there was an official connector.

    This would enable us to not have to deploy Azure functions to run, but rather Flow where I could assign non developers to maintain and update. Also will keep costs down

    We also have a use case for using Power Automate to connect to 7pace. Was looking for a solution when I ran upon this post.

    Devops only gives us the calculated total of work hours but we have a need to show the actual logged times per person.

    Hello everyone!

    We've check possible options for Power Automate connector, and here what we've found:
    1) Swagger option will not work (as it requires OpenApi 2.0, and we are using OpenApi 3.0)
    2) Postman option is available, but as we have query parameters (in URL with GET or in body with POST) these parameters will vary a lot, depending on customer's needs. So we could not create universal Postman gallery, that will suit everyone's needs. So our suggestions here is to create your own Postman collection with queries you need and import it in Power Automate Connector (with instruction in the link above), and then you could use it in your integrations.

    BTW, we are currently working on basic Postman collection (with examples from widget gallery) and we will add in to the Widget Gallery article in our documentation

    Appreciate the feedback Maxim. Easiest solution for everybody -- and by everybody I mean your clients -- is for 7pace to publish a Connector on the Power Platform. Postman collection imported will work for some people, but generally requires additionally licensing as well as the knowledge of how to create a Custom Connection.

    There's already Connectors for Harvest, timeghost.io and Clockify so you are already behind the competition here a little here. Admittedly they are Premium connectors, which is slightly annoying, but I don't know enough about the publishing process and if it's even a decision they get to make re Standard or Premium to comment on if I think they are just being greedy :). Still, greedy or not, they are at least up there already.
