Can't connect to On-Premise SQL Server (Licence error?)

Hi!

 

I'm trying to connect Power Apps to our on-premise SQL-database. I have a data gateway installed and it is working great with Power BI, for example. I can see the gateway in Power Apps, but when I try to create a new connection, I get this error message:

 

"Your licence(s) doesn't support the use of gateways. To use this feature, start a trial" (screenshot attached)

 

I can't see how that can be, since I have a Microsoft 365 E5 licence. That should pretty much cover everything.

 

The info I type in, when trying to create the connection:

 

Login type: SQL Server Login

 

Server:

OurServer\MSSQLSERVER

 

Database:

OurDataBaseName

 

Username:

SQL-user

 

Password:

SQL-user password

 

Gateway:

The gateway I installed

Hi @ilied 

Unfortunately, an E5 license doesn't cover the use of on-premise SQL server.  This is to is why you see the trial message.

The on-premises gateway is a premium connector and therefore, it requires a per app or user plan.

A per app plan starts at $10/user/month.

There are more details here.
