Like many organization, you’re probably also looking for a more “rapid development” track for a subset of your applications. I’ve heard a lot of reasons for this… Going from rapid prototyping to having small apps that make life a lot easier within the organization (like typical approval flows). For this we’re going to see how we can combine PowerApps & Azure Functions! By using PowerApps we want to take a low/no-code approach to creating the front-end, where Functions (or even Logic Apps as an alternative) will allow us to provide specific back-end data.
Recipe for today
Today we’ll be using the following ingredients as a base for the recipe of the day ;
- Function Backend : https://github.com/kvaes/azure-functions-turbinerepair (created after following this tutorial)
- PowerApps Tutorial : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-powerapps-scenario
Here we’ll be building a small powerapp that’ll call an API (OpenAPI Spec) that is hosted as an Azure function. So basically connecting a low/no-code app to a serverless API.
