Secury All user - Gateway

Hi everyone!

I work in Brazil and all employees in the administrative area of ​​all units around the globe have access to PowerApps. We started using PowerApps here at the unit in Brazil, but I came across a security problem. We will use a local SQL Server database (On-demand), where we install a Gateway on the server to enable this access bridge and we use the SQL Serve connector, this connector uses a SQL Server Authentication user, until now perfect, we managed connect and access data. However, when I develop the application and share it with other users, this opens a security breach in accessing the SQL Server Database, because when I share the application, it is necessary to automatically share the SQL Server connector and this user ends up having access to the entire database, allowing him to create his application to manipulate my application data. Is there another, safer way to make the connection to the database, where it is in the Back-end, hidden from the user, without the need for him to have access to the connector, something in this sense?

Re: Secury All user - Gateway

Hi @Danilo-ES-BR :

  Currently, SQL Server connector supports Active Directory authentication, but considering that you are using the gateway(local SQL Sever database), I am afraid that your requirements are difficult to achieve .Once the "Can Use" Permission of this connection is granted to a user, the user can call this connection by creating his own app.

(users can create their own apps and call your shared connection to modify data).

  The way I can think of at present is to migrate the data to azure datebase or CDS which supports identity authentication data sources.

  In addition,maybe you have seen these posts already, but I would suggest that anyone affected by this vote on these ideas. I think this would be the most effective route towards progressing a fix for this issue.

Best Regards,
