Allowing Integration with External Services Such as Microsoft Power Automate and Slack

You can allow users to integrate Kintone with external services such as Microsoft Power Automate and Slack.
OAuth is used for authentication. This ensures a secure connection with external services and other integrated services, without having to type in a login name or password for Kintone.

What You Can Do by Integrating with Microsoft Power Automate

Microsoft Power Automate is an online service that allows users to connect with various services however they want, including Kintone, SharePoint, Dropbox, Slack, e-mail, Excel, and so on.
By using Microsoft Power Automate, you can integrate Kintone with the above-mentioned services that are supported by Microsoft Power Automate. Data registered to Kintone can be reflected in the integrated services, and also data registered to the integrated services can be reflected in Kintone.

Example:

  • Notifying Kintone when an e-mail client such as Outlook receives an e-mail
  • When a record has been added to the Kintone app, registering it as an event in Google Calendar

Notes on Integrating with Microsoft Power Automate

Before using the integrated service, you need to allow access from the IP addresses which Microsoft Power Automate, Office 365, and Microsoft Azure use. For the list of IP addresses to allow, refer to the following page on the Microsoft website:


The integrated services and Kintone need to be configured in the same data group of Microsoft Power Automate.
