Dual Sync between SQL Server & Dataverse

I have source database as Azure SQL.

I created Dataverse table by connecting Azure SQL as connector which refreshes Dataverse Data every day!

I build one Power Apps connecting data from Dataverse. Now, I need sync mechanism that whenever, a new entry is added to Dataverse that will be sync with Azure SQL(We can sync real time or may be every day). 

 

  • How to achieve this Dual Sync - SQL to Dataverse  and Dataverse to SQL?

Hi @Dhruvin,

 

Two way data integration in general becomes significantly more complex to manage, and more costly because now you have storage costs for both data sources.

 

I would consider exploring Virtual Tables so you can write data directly into your SQL database but still use it like a Dataverse table and bring it into Model Driven Apps. You will save on storage costs, have your data up to date in real time, and won't have to deal with complex syncing and reconciliation between two systems for when issues occur in the sync.

 

There is a newer Virtual Connector Provider  which basically builds on top of the Connector ecosystem specifically for Virtual table use. SQL Server is the first provider available.
