Connecting to data only in organisation wifi network or vpn connect

Hi,

 

It might seem to be "out of topic" especially with the purpose of the Power Platform. However, I am trying to see if there is any possibilities to have the availability of user interaction with the PowerApps / Power Automate, only when the users are within the organisation WiFi network or through a VPN connection when they are out of the office premises. This is a requirement for our organisation security concern.

Re: Connecting to data only in organisation wifi network or vpn connect

Hi @tanjuayyong I don't know of any way to restrict Power Apps or Power Automate to only within the organisation wifi or via VPN. If a user is able to login to Office 365 over, for example, their home wifi they will be able to do everything that they can in the office. I think this is by design as Microsoft are pushing the "work anywhere" culture. I never visit any of our offices!

I'm thinking it might be something Azure AD Conditional Access could do... at least it's worth giving it a try:

HI @tanjuayyong 

 

Just to complement a little on what @ashlega  and @RobElliott  are saying, don't forget that Power Automation doesn't run on your computer. It's a service that you invoke and it's run elsewhere, so it has no awareness of where you are or the local conditions.

 

The only solution that I see is to try out the trigger "When I enter or leave a location" and see if you can, by the location, trigger the Power Automation.

 

It's a long shot, but you can try this to see if you can get something out of it.
