Using custom C # code when creating custom connectors for Power Platform or Logic Apps
At Stefano Demiliani’s blog, Demiliani said that a user integrating between Dynamics 365 Business Central and Power Platform might need to create a custom connector.
Demiliani explained that custom connectors are useful when you don’t have a predefined connector with a particular app or API. He noted that they let you create (and even share) a connector with its own triggers and actions.
Custom connectors are used in the same way as connectors managed by Microsoft. You will need to create a connection to your API in order to use that connection to invoke all of the operations that you have exposed in your custom connector.
He added that if you create custom connectors, you can now add custom C # code in the connectors and he explained how to do that in his article.
