Is it possible to connect to a View in SQL Server?

PowerApps only shows me the available tables in the my Azure SQL Server database not the views.

Hi Malm66,

 

Well currently I can't say if this would be possible.

I agree with that this is a good idea.

Edited:

Tested again, and I found I am wrong about Power BI and the View, it works. Apologize for that.

In addition to vote the idea posted by Malm66, you may consider to submit a new idea on this topic.

HI, I believe that Power BI (and Excel Power Query) support views from SQL server.  Certainly Excel Power BI supports views from Access Web Apps, which are a form of SQL server.

Just in case anyone comes to this ... you can now connect to a view (well, on an Azure SQL Database) ... I am already doing it.
