When using an OpenAPI definition to describe a custom connector in Power Automate, [https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/custom-connectors/faq#limits the file must be less than 1 MB].

Creating a sample flow using the connector

Building ustom connectors

Resco has prepared OpenAPI definition files that can be used by Power Automate to create a custom connector for interfacing with Resco Cloud. Both YAML and JSON formats are available. When using an OpenAPI definition to describe a custom connector in Power Automate, the file must be less than 1 MB. Therefore, the API definition only includes selected entities by default. Contact Resco support for more information.

Tip The API definition files can be also utilized by other tools and services compatible with the OpenAPI standard, not only Power Automate.

(Coming soon): You can also generate your own OpenAPI file with entities necessary for your particular use case. In the Admin Console, select TBD from the menu; then select the entities (fields?) that you need.
