What's Best way to consume External Rest API in PCF Control

Posted on by 3,962

Hi All,


I have built one sub grid control using Typescript and React JS in Powerapp Control Framework.

Now i want to add some action in this subgrid control . On click of these action  , it will rather fetch data from external Rest API or update or create data in external web api too.


So kindly suggest me what's best way to do these Rest API operations in Typescript. Also should i consume Rest API operations in Typescript or its better to consume it in DotNet Plugin and call register that plugin on click of these action buttons or is there any better approach ?


My Concern here is that as Typescript is deployed finally on client side . So if  i consume Rest API in Typescript and deploy this control on Powerapp environment then it will reside on Client side application not on server side like we consume rest api in DotNet class file and hence client side deployment might create security risks too.


Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.
