Power automate cloud, who does api calls?

Hello,

 

I've a question about power automate cloud architecture.

If i understand things well, connectors in PA cloud are just webservices wrappers. And these webservices perform actions and return a result.

So if i use a connector, power automate servers are calling the webservice host and getting a return => nothing goes through my network if i didn't "ask for it".

 

Recently, i've tried to use the SFTP connector and got the "bad gateway" message when i pressed the "create" button (note that the gateway we're talking about here isn't the on premise one).

I know that my firewall blocks SFTP but it shouldn't be a problem as no SFTP goes through it (calls are made from PA to Azure APIs).

 

Did i just mess up the connection parameters or does anything need to go through my network? (the flow only had one step and it was the SFTP get files from folder).

 

Best regards.

Hi @PBrt ,

 

Is there whitelisting on the sFTP side?  Is the sFTP hostname/DNS resolvable externally from Power Automate?

 

I found a great article here for things to check.
