With Integrations, users can use Microsoft Flow to connect with external services.
About Kintone & Microsoft Flow?
Microsoft Flow is an online service that allows users to connect with various services, including Kintone, Sharepoint, Dropbox, Slack, Email Services, Excel, and so on. By using Microsoft Flow, its supported services can be connected with Kintone.
Kintone uses OAuth for authentication. This ensures a secure connection with Microsoft Flow, and other connected services, without having to type in a login name or password for kintone.com.
Data registered to Kintone can be reflected in the connected services, and vice versa.
- Notifying Kintone when an email is received by your email client, such as Outlook
- When a record has been added to the Kintone application, adding it as an event in Google Calendar
When IP restrictions are enabled on your domain, the connecting service is not available. Allowing access from the IP addresses of Microsoft Flow enables the connecting service. For the list of IP addresses to allow, see the following page on the Microsoft website: Limits and configuration in Microsoft Flow. For the IP restrictions setting, see the following page: Configuring IP Address Restrictions and Basic Authentication.
- Connection with external services is only supported by Kintone.
