On-premises Data Gateway the same for PowerBI as PowerApps?

Frequent Contributor

I have installed a Data Gateway for PowerBI.

 

Will this gateway work with PowerApps too?

 

It doesn't seem to find the gateway, or I haven't seen how to add an existing one.

 

Any pointers?

If I remember well, there is a "universal" gateway that should work for both Power BI and Power Apps. See this: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/connect-to-your-on-premises-data-sources-using-on-premise...

In the PowerBI documentation (link), it is clearly calling out that PowerBI On-premises Data Gateway will work for Microsoft Flow, Logic Apps, and PowerApps services.

 

That said; Microsoft PowerApps documents that it has its own on-premises data gateways as well (link) which I have to admit it looks really similar if not the same!

 

One of the main differences I see is the number of data sources that the gateways can access to which I am not sure if it is a documentation error or if it really is the only difference.

Thanks everyone! I was able to get Enterprise Data Gateway installed and it is working for PowerApps!
