Use PowerApps to connect to SQL server for data and a Python script

Is it possible to build the following functionalities in a PowerApp:

1) the end-user can click a button to load the current set of data from a SQL database into a python script

2) Click a button that runs some functions on that data in the python script

3) Obtain those results on PowerApp

 

Thanks!

You won't be able to run the Python script in the PowerApp. PowerApps is a 'forms' technology with limited on-device processing and no support for other languages.

I believe you could use PowerApps to trigger a Flow that calls an Azure Function which could pull the data from SQL and run a Python script and then return the results to the PowerApps.

Note though that to trigger an Azure Function you would generally do so via an http call and these are now classed as premium so you'd have to pay $10 per user per app per month to do this.

Given that in this model your processing would all be on the cloud rather than on the device you may want to choose something without the licensing limitations of PowerApps for displaying the results.
