At Build developer conference today, Microsoft announced a new way for developers to create connectors that allow their app or service to work with PowerApps and Microsoft Flow. Once connected, customers can easily automate their business processes and create their own no-code line of business apps. Users can leverage a set of pre-built triggers and actions to build their apps and workflows. To build and submit an API connector, an app must fit the following criteria:
- Business user scenario that fits well with Flow, PowerApps and Logic Apps
- Publicly available service with stable REST APIs

Data Connectors for Power BI enable users to connect to and access data from your application, service, or data source, providing them with rich business intelligence and robust analytics over multiple data sources.
