Power Platform & Azure – Better Together: Azure APIM Connector

Power Platform and Azure connected together is such a powerful story of “Powerful alone, but better together”. In this blog, we will look into how Azure APIM and PowerPlatform can be connected together.

Power Platform and Azure connected together is such a powerful story of “Powerful alone, but better together”. When connected to Azure, Microsoft Power Platform enables you to quickly deliver value and build Enterprise solutions.

In this blog, we will look into how Azure APIM and PowerPlatform can be connected together.

Azure APIM:  Digital transformation runs of APIs ( application programming interface).  Api’s are abstractions, they allow you to decouple consumption and implementation based on standards which allow them to be available to work with any platform and any applications.`

Anyone can build api and publish them, but building api and running it as a strategic business is another thing. This is where APIM provides value, Azure API management provides a gateway for api using which organizations publish APIs to external, partner, and internal developers to leverage them and access different data and services.

Logic App Definition Parameter Vs ARM Parameters – ALM Part 3

In the previous blog – we looked into getting Logic Apps CI/CD using ARM Template Parameter, we briefly touched on logic app definition parameter. In this post, we will look further into using Logic app definition parameter as an intermediary and the benefits of doing so.

Comparison:

ARM Parameters Logic App definition Parameters
Used with ARM Template Used within a Logic App
Value evaluated during Deployment Value evaluated during Runtime
Syntax: “uri” : “[parameters(‘vsts_bug_url’)” Syntax:  “uri”: “@parameters(‘url’)”
Not referenced post-deployment Available in Code view and Designer view
Suited for Environment Specific values Suited for Reference objects

so the obvious question is how we can leverage Logic App parameters as an intermediary and why to do so?
