  • Install On-Premises Data Gateway. The On-Premises Data Gateway should be installed on your local SQL, Oracle, File Server or BizTalk Server in order to be able to access a local resource from Power BI or a Logic App. First install a so-called Application Gateway locally and then start using this new functionality. In BizTalk 2016 you can use the new Logic App Adapter to call a BizTalk orchestration (receive) or call a logic app (send). In Logic Apps you can either use the SQL Connector or the new BizTalk Connector to access the local resource. Just indicate you want to use the On-Premises Data Gateway.
