Re: Not a valid connector

The account used for the SQL connector doesn't have access to the underlying database you are trying to connect to.  That's normally why you can't allow it.

Re: Not a valid connector

What connector does the app use?  Can we get a screenshot of the error?

Re: Not a valid connector

Hi @MatthewFalcao ,

 

Please check if you have added a proper SQL Server connection within your PowerApps app. Please also check if the SQL Server connection within your PowerApps app is invalid, if yes, please update the connection.

Microsoft cannot just keep quiet on this. We spent weeks and month to develop and application which works fine and will suddenly begin to throw connection error. This is frustrating 8
