SQL problem yet again!!!

Powerapps connection to Azure SQL database is playing up again. This is a regular monthly occurance. 

Last month we couldn't connect at all now it is so slow it take minutes to save or retrieve records. Again after a powerapps update!!


Now I'll wait for...give me your Session ID then 5 days of support emails without a resolution for 2 weeks...

Whilst user have to put up with it!


SESSION ID : 1d8270c1-3fb6-4997-8e30-b159be8e00651

Re: SQL problem yet again!!!

Hello all,


This issue should be mitigated. We fixed some configuration changes in Sql connector. Please try again and let us know if the issue persists.

Re: SQL problem yet again!!!

This is very concerning.  I'm currently developing an app with SQL Server using the data gateway.  I plan to migrate it to Azure SQL DB.  I'm doing it this way since I'm using SQL Profiler to understand PowerApps and to optimize performance.  I'm not seeing performance issues using this approach.  I've had to clear the browser cache on occasion to get things working properly.  What devices are you using to run your app?  I use Edge generally and Chrome oocassionally.


You could try testing app by migrating app using an on-premise SQL Server and the data gateway.  It works with SQL Server Express (free).   


Keep us posted on your progress.

Re: SQL problem yet again!!!

Hi, thanks for the reply. Yes the issue has resolved.
Although, can I ask why this keeps happening on a regular basis? This has happened numerous times with Azure SQL connections.

Re: SQL problem yet again!!!

Spoke to soon.... ARRRRGGHHH this is unbelievable!

It seems this morning SQL views are not working correctly with mulitple filters! 

This is system wide, please see seesion ID and errors from one of our devices below.

The SQL view isn't working when I have a boolean filter applied if I remove it it works. Although this has been working since March 2018 and now it suddenly breaks!!




When trying to retrieve a sql view, the error meesage is:


The specified record was not found.

Server response: Invalid Column name 'True'.

clientrequestID: b40d0514-6202-4c2c-b36d-b1ff3d0653df


Session ID: 8befdc5a-feda-46ea-9a89-d29068c8ad66


Should I start another thread.

Re: SQL problem yet again!!!

I also have an issue with boolean type:

Filter([myTable], column1=false) do not work this morning

I had to change it to Filter([myTable], column1=0). We lost the benefit of delegative query...
