Re: Refreshing SQL Server Schema in PowerApps

I've since found that you basically need to remove the Data Source to that table or view and re-add it to have changes reflected. However, the Data Connection to the database doesn't need to be changed.

A restart of the on-premises gateway and a refresh of the data source did the trick for me. Not sure how this would work with an Azure DB though.

Re: Refreshing SQL Server Schema in PowerApps

Same issue here, using On-Premise Data Gateway and MS Flow.  Haven't tried the gateway restart yet, but simply re-adding the data source didn't do the trick.  My new table is still a ghost.

 

Microsoft - if anyone is listening, I can see this becoming a major pain.  Please fix!

is there any update on that? I have the same problem with cloud-based Azuew SQL views

Same issue here still. 

 

I did restart the Gateway and it appears to work but a major pain.

Re: Refreshing SQL Server Schema in PowerApps

I've simply gotten into the habit of always removing and re-adding the view if I make any sort of add/remove/updates.  I've never ran into an issue on either Azure SQL or on-prem SQL servers where I couldn't see a column that exists on the database after removing and re-adding the table/view.  I would investigate the logs of the on-prem gateway to see if they shed any light on the health of the gateway.  Perhaps there is something conflicting with the software.

Re: Refreshing SQL Server Schema in PowerApps

Hello Microsoft!

 

Is there already a fix for this?

When I change a view/table or add a view/table it's not reflected in Flow / powerapps!!

This is such an annoying bug.

I keep restarting my gateway (which is in production!)

The other "solution" is to wait 2 or 3 hours...

 

Best regards,

Jeroen

Same issue as well. I would love to know if anyone at Microsoft is looking into this.

Hello Microsoft - trying to get your attention on this major issue.

Re: Refreshing SQL Server Schema in PowerApps

I had the same problem. Restarting the gateway and refreshing the data source in the Power App Studio worked. 

 

I think that this may not be a great issue in a production environment because I suppose that only a few, structured, changes, are committed in a controlled fashion. 

 

Anyhow it's a tricky way, undocumented, for performing a task that is common during the development phase.

Re: Refreshing SQL Server Schema in PowerApps

I am also still having this problem. Any schema change does not reflect itself in powerapps or flow. This can take hours to correct itself. I do not have access to the gateway to restart it. Please fix it.
