Custom Connector How to extract specific part of Authorization Code and pass it to Web.Contents URL

Hi all,

 

Accountant here trying to create a custom connector so any help will be greatly appreciated!

 

Connector is successfully extracting auth code and exchanging it for access code. No issues there. Issue is I need to extract an additional code in addition to the auth code and I need to pass it to my API calls. The URL I'm passing in PowerBI to make API calls looks something like the one on the Web.Contents below, I added the #dynamicrealmidneededhere# to highlight where I need the value. Right now I’m inserting that code manually to make the connector work:

 

 

[DataSource.Kind = "CustomConnector", Publish = "CustomConnector.Publish"]

shared CustomConnector.Contents = (optional message as text) =>

let

source = Json.Document(

Web.Contents(

"https://accounting.api.testing.com/v3/company/#dynamicrealmidneededhere#/reports/ProfitAndLoss?start_date=2023-10-01&end_date=2023-10-31&qzurl=true&minorversion=69"

)

)

in

source;

 

 

The code realmId is a value that represents a company. When a user logs in to the accounting system, the user selects a company from a list of companies that it wants to query. The realmId represents the selected company. That realmId is included in the auth URL the API sends after a user successfully logs in. URL includes both auth code and realmId as per the structure below:

 

 

 

 

https://testingaccounting.com/app/developer/playground?code=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&state=state&realmId=xxxxxxxxx

 

 

 

As per mentioned above, the connector successfully grabs the auth code from said URL and exchanges that for the access token, no issues there. I just need to somehow also grab the realmId and pass it to the Web.Contents API call included above (section in the URL that says #dynamicrealmidneededhere#). I've tried a couple of things but so far I haven't been able to make it work. Here is the structure of my connector in case it is needed. As I mentioned above, any help will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!
