How To: Set up the DocumentsCorePack custom connector for PowerApps & Microsoft Flow)

In this article we will show you how to create a DocumentsCorePack custom connector for PowerAutomate enabling users to utilize  the document generation and processing capabilities within their Flows and Canvas Apps.

IMPORTANT: As of 1st March 2020 the connector is in BETA and will change over the course of the months until the connector is officially released (target: April 2020). It is NOT recommended to use the connector in production-flows as functionality could breaks as we perform updates to the API. 

Prerequisites:
  • Your DocumentsCorePack service must be hosted on mscrm-addons.com (Open Service Configuration)
  • Your DocumentsCorePack service must use Server2Server authentication
