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,

UIT

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.

 

@cboake Did you get any response for this? Please let me know. I have similar requirement.
