Cant find use Cosmos DB Connector

Hello, everybody,
I would like to set up a Cosmos DB database in Azure and connect it to Power Apps.

In Power Apps under Data Sources --> Add Data Source I can't find the Cosmos DB Connector, although there is some documentation available, e.g here.

 

Can you give me some hints?

 

Is it recommended to use Cosmos DB in connection with Power Apps, are there alternatives?

 

Thanks for the help and many greetings
Joshua

Re: Cant find use Cosmos DB Connector

Hey everyone,

just to give a short update on this:

I was in contact with the support team (by the way, very engaged and helpful ) and unfortunatly the Cosmos DB connector is not supported within powerapps at the moment:

 

As per the latest update from our product group, we are really sorry to inform you that COSMO DB is not supported in Power Apps.

I tried my level best to get this resolved but as this is limitation of the product I was not able to do much from my end.

Once Again sorry for not being able to reach your requirement.

 

However, I was able to use Power Automate to solve my task. Here, the Cosmos DB connector works well and in an intuitive way.
