Powerapps -> PowerAutomate -> SQL Database

Hi,

 

Is it possible to instead of using the SQL connector in powerapps to click on a button in powerapps to patch the data I want to patch through PowerAutomate to SQL? I'm thinking about some team members who can't access Premium.

 

Regards,

It will not make a difference.  When PowerApps starts, it looks at the Flows that are connected to it.  If THEY use a premium connector, then so must your app user have a premium license.

 

The only potential workaround is to have your app store information in a SharePoint list and have your flow monitor that list.  When it sees a new record, it can then process it to SQL with one account license.  This introduces delays into the process and "stale" data in some cases, so consider that before proceeding.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

I was trying to avoid that as I hate working with SharePoint. Does my head in. But will probably be my only solution for the time being. Thanks @RandyHayes
