On-premises data gateway support for Azure Analysis Services

Community Manager

Azure Analysis Services now supports the shared On-Premises Data Gateway which is used with Power BI, Flow, Logic Apps, and PowerApps. This has been a top ask in our user feedback. The shared gateway allows you to associate many services to one gateway or you can continue to use a dedicated gateway. With the shared gateway, managing connectivity is much easier. For example, you can configure multiple Azure Analysis Services servers to use the same gateway just by associating each one to the same gateway.

To use the shared gateway, the first step is to setup the On-Premises Data Gateway by downloading and running the gateway installer on a local computer. During the install, you will be prompted for your work or school account which will be setup as a gateway administrator in the gateway service. In order to associate your gateway to an Azure resource, you will need to be an administrator. After you set up a recovery key, you may need to change the region of the gateway.
