Power apps communication with SQL and reading column types, is not null etc.

I have a question regarding how Power apps communicates to SQL database, If I were to submit a new form, which would add a row to the SQL database, is Power apps able to read from the SQL database to see which fields are 'not null' and therefore compulsory fields. And therefore can Power apps be configured to pick up this and tell the user that the field is compulsory, and only allow the user to submit if the fields are all filled in correctly. I want this to dynamically pick up from the information in the SQL database and not configured on the power apps front end Many thanks for your help Jese

Hi Jese,

 

When we create a form against a SQL table, PowerApps automatically adds required field validation for fields that are set 'not null'. In the screenshot beneath, we can see how PowerApps adds the associated validation logic, and the * symbol against the Firstname field (this is set to not null in the database).
