Dynamic URL from user input

Hello,

 

Is it possible to take user input and use it to create the url that will be used in a custom connector? The URI looks like "https://<variable here>.restofdomain.com/rest/", we don't know all of the values for <variable here> so pulling from a list wouldn't be useful in this case. We would like to have one connector that could be used for all of our clients, each client has a url of "somethingUnique.restofdomain.com/". All connections would have the same data connector logic, the only difference is the URLs. Is this possible?

Re: Dynamic URL from user input

Yes it is possible.  I suggest you look at organizational content packs or Power BI apps.   These are basically parameters that you will require user to fill in - the M code that drives your connection can then leverage those parameters to create correct URL endpoints, etc.

 Good luck!
