Can I use a local or on-site SQL Server for PowerApps data?

We have a vast number of Microsoft SQL Servers at our organization, but they are all of course behind a firewall. How can PowerApps reach these if an app runs from the cloud?

Re: Can I use a local or on-site SQL Server for PowerApps data?

Hi @dmcdivitt,

Do you want to use On-premise SQL Table as data source of your app?

 

If you want to access On-premise SQL table from your app, you must firstly install an On-premise data gateway within your computer. More details about installing a On-premise data gateway within your computer, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/gateway-reference

 

In addition, more details about connecting SQL Server from PowerApps, please check the following article:
