Connecting External Application 2021.4.4 - Power Automate

Hey UiPath Forum,

I am working on a solution in which an end user using Power Apps will click a button to submit a request. Power Automate is listening to button presses, and once pressed, a Flow triggers that needs to connect to our UiPath Orchestrator Instance and start an indicated process.

I noticed that 2021.4 utilizes a new method to connect External applications, but I have been having trouble trying to connect this with our Cloud Orchestrator:

I am attempting to use a Confidential application and set it up correctly using the Admin panel in our Orchestrator instance following the instructions of the documentation. However, I have not been able to make a successful GET request in Postman or Power Automate to get the authorization key. Has anyone successfully been able to run Postman / Power Automate with the new External Applications connections and provide examples / guidance on how to establish this?

Also, what URL am I supposed to put for the redirect_uri?
