In SharePoint, we can now use the location and map functionalities. These functionalities internally rely upon Bing Maps REST services. Though, we need not have to be concerned with this, as it is managed OOTB by SharePoint. However, these Bing Maps REST services are not completely free. You need to subscribe to one of there plans and generate a Bing Maps Key in order to use this service.
In this post, I’ll demonstrate how to run any SharePoint REST API directly from MS Flow. MS FLow already provides lots of action cards OOTB. For ex, create a list, delete a list, etc. However, it doesn’t contain action cards for, let’s say, every possible operation within SharePoint. Microsoft has intentionally provided, only the commonly used actions to MS Flow. This also makes sense because, one of the key attribute of MS Flow lies in its simplicity and how, even a business user can perform simple tasks on their own. Rather than having the users lost in a plethora of choices, they are presenting them with only a list of commonly used tasks. For everything else, there’s REST API.
