Power BI custom connector, Basic Authentication - UsernameLabel, is there a UsernameInfo?

Hi all,


Creating a Power BI custom connector that uses basic auth.


    Authentication = [
         UsernamePassword = [
            UsernameLabel = Extension.LoadString("UsernameLabelText"),
            PasswordLabel = Extension.LoadString("PasswordLabelText")]
    Label = Extension.LoadString("DataSourceLabel")




Is there a way to put an "info" description next to the Username or Password label in the Authentication prompt? Please see image below:


I'd like this info icon/description:


To appear here as well:




Thank you,

Hi @cboake 

If I create a custom connector in Power Apps, it is easy to add such info beside the label.


If you create custom connectors with other ways, please refer to:

Hi Maggie,


This is helpful for PowerApp custome connectors, however this question is specifically for PowerBI custom connectors.
