We had the same issue with our PowerApps/Flow. Within PowerApps we could no longer see our Gateway. This Gateway still worked with PowerBI. The problem was the Gateway default region/data centre (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/global-infrastructure/locations/).
We discovered our PowerApps Environment had changed the region/data centre it looked at. (Don't know why it changed). Originally our PowerApps looked at the UK South Region, now it looks at the North Europe region. Therefore when our original Gateway was installed it automatically defaulted to look at the UK South region (data centre).
Because our PowerApps Envirnoment was changed to look at the North Europe region, PowerApps couldn't see any Gateway, because it didn't exist in that region/data centre.
The default region can be changed when setting up the Gateway, see attached image.
To fix this problem we created 2 separate Gateways on 2 separate servers. One Gateway set to the UK South region for PowerBI and the other Gateway set to North Europe region for PowerApps.
Thank you @Vinnie I have checked the environment on the Gateway, it says UK South.
I finally found thanks to this link how to check the Power Apps region.
It shows as Europe.
No wonder it can't find a gateway! Thank you for pushing me to look closer at Regions.
I found the Change Region bit you highlighted for me (THANK YOU!), but the options include North Europe and South Europe - but Power Apps looks to Europe... 😕 Thanks Microsoft...
Luckily I took your advice and chose North Europe - IT WORKS!! 😄 THANK YOU!
You're welcome @james_goodhew delighted it worked.
I tested a Gateway set to the West Europe region data centre and it also works with my PowerApps Environment.
Still not sure why our PowerApps and PowerBI environments are pointing to different regions.
Goodo, yes very strange.
Just as a gift for a Friday afternoon, I then got it to recognise the gateway, it showed up in my Flow, and... said "your license does not allow you to use gateways". >_< After all that effort!!
Why allow us to see the File System Connector as NOT "Premium" yet the single most important prerequisite is a PAID FOR component?
Does anybody have a solution for this? I have several gateways in Power BI for which I am a User and several for which I am an admin. When I look under Gateways in Power Automate or Power Apps I only see the ones for which I am an admin. How can this be solved? I've asked IT to update/reinstall the gateways but to no avail.
