A connector is explained as a wrapper around a RESTful API and makes it possible for the underlying service (behind an API) to talk to Power Automate, Azure Logic Apps and Power Apps. There are hundreds of pre-defined connectors to be used and if you need to connect to a service or data source for which there is no connector, you have the possibility to create a Custom Connector. Examples of connectors are for the different Office 365 services, e.g. for sending e-mails with Outlook and connecting to SharePoint, Microsoft Dataverse, Twitter, Dropbox etc.

The connectors have triggers and actions. Triggers are used to initiate a Power Automate flow and the actions are used for different operations e.g. read and write data. You can also connect to on-premises sources by setting up an on-premise data gateway.
