Can't add a data source since 8/14 update

I no longer see the "Add Data Source +" when I try to connect to a data source and add a new data source since the 8/14 update.  When I click on the new data source icon or anywhere else in the app to connect to a dta source, I get a search box but no add button.  


Is this a bug or is there a new way to add data sources.  







Then I think you are going to have to open a support ticket.  You should see a dropdown below the search box when you click on Connect to Data.  If you are seeing the Searchbox, but not the dropbox then something is wrong in your tenant.


As a workaround have you tried typing the name of a connector in the Search box to see if that will bring up the list?

Yes, same popup with only the search box

I think your only option is going to be to open a support call.  The interface did change, but you are doing it the right way.

I'm having the same problem, too. Just started this morning.
I played around a little - things looked diffently than before.

Got it to work by:
View-> Data Sources
Expanding "Connectors"
Selecting the connector I wanted (even though I had been previously using it)
Choosing the table I wanted
Choosing "Connect"

Hi @thanke ,

It is an update within PowerApps data source panel experience, please check the following blog for more details:


I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned. The screenshot as below:1.JPG


Please consider clear cache of your browser, and then sign in your PowerApps again, check if the issue is solved.


Best regards,

Yeah, it took me a bit to find as well.  To connect to a new table from a database or connect to a SharePoint list, you need to go to the Connectors section, select a connector, select the connected source, then on the right-hand side, a window will appear with the items within the connected data source to connect to.


i.e. Select SQL server, then select the database and on the right-hand side, a window will appear with the tables to select from your chosen database.
