iAuditor’s integration with Power Automate (previously MS Flow) allows you to tap into this capability and connect your auditing data with their ecosystem. Power Automate is a cloud connector tool that allows you to build workflows that interconnect many different software services (up to 120 and growing) with your iAuditor inspection data.
The iAuditor Power Automate Connector supports the following capabilities:
- Retrieve a list of inspections modified in a given date range
- Transfer PDF and MS Word inspection reports from iAuditor to another service like Outlook, SharePoint, MS Teams or other
- Get easily shareable inspection web report links
- Generate links that will take a user directly to inspections within iAuditor
- Retrieve raw inspection metadata like the title, location, etc. of a given inspection (but not the raw inspection responses)
Set it up in minutes with this guide.
Troubleshooting Power Automate connector
- If no call to the iAuditor API is made within 30 days the iAuditor credentials will expire and need to be renewed. To configure iAuditor authentication in Power Automate see this article.
- If the connector fails at any particular step continuously it may get disabled. To find details of any error see the Flow run history – depending on the source of the error contact Microsoft, SafetyCulture (for iAuditor) or any 3rd party connector support. For information on how to automatically export inspections using Power Automate, visit this article.
- The number of calls a connector can perform per minute. This is a hard limit, 100 calls at the time of writing.
- The number of times the connector can run in a month. More runs can be purchased on-demand as needed.
- Various limits for interacting with SharePoint – see Microsoft’s guide here.
- If the “search modified inspections” step fails for any reason (e.g. iAuditor API is down for maintenance), inspections may be missed.
- Some media (images) may not completely upload to the iAuditor backend if an inspection report export is requested immediately after conducting the inspection.
Power Automate supports a comprehensive list of certifications and more. Inspection data is transferred in plaintext over a secure TLS connection. No iAuditor data is stored by Microsoft, the connector is only used to transfer data from one service to another.
