Building Power Virtual Agent responses from on-premise SQL Server Database of Legacy Application

Building Power Virtual Agent responses from on-premise SQL Server Database of Legacy Application

 

If you are building a PVA for a legacy application which has crafted a web interface for Customers but the data you need to fetch resides in an On-Premise SQL Server being used by a WIndows Client, this approach comes in handy. I had to fetch job description from an on-premise SQL Server for my PVA hosted on a standalone marketing site web Page. SO below steps were followed in integration with a Power Automate Flow.

 

 

Create a new Flow with a SQL GetRow action or alternate step and configure the connection with your On-Premise SQL Server. Configure a query with Inputs from the PVA or a direct query to simply fetch the rows.

This is achieved by adding a Gateway for your on-prem database and using that on Power Automate Gateways.

Now once this is saved, call this flow from your PVA Authoring canvas and your PVA would be able to respond to user input 

based on data fetched from on premise SQL Server.

 

Please refer to attached document for images! 

 

Thanks!
