On-premises data gateway management in the Power platform admin center

We are excited to launch the public preview of the Data Gateway feature on the Power platform admin center; This feature provides tenant admins with visibility into all On-premises data gateways within their organization and also management capabilities.

On-premises data gateway

Once you log in as a tenant admin, click on Data Gateway on the left in the Power platform Admin center.

This shows all On-premises data gateway clusters installed within the tenant.  It also includes the following details about these gateway clusters:

  • Gateway Cluster Name: Name of the gateway cluster
  • Contact Info: Admin Contact Information for the gateway cluster
  • Administrators: List of current gateway administrators
  • Gateways: Number of gateway members within the gateway cluster

Note: On-premises data gateway(personal mode) and gateways outside of your Power BI tenant region are currently not included.

 

View Gateway members

This helps the tenant admin see gateway members in each gateway cluster. Clicking on the   next to the Gateway cluster name display the gateway members. The detail includes the gateway member device name and the version of gateway on the device. Alternatively, you can also invoke this by selecting the gateway cluster and clicking on Open Gateways at the top.

 

Manage Gateway Administrators

Tenant admins can now add and remove gateway admins. Click on the   icon for the gateway cluster. This will show the list of gateway admins. Alternatively, you can also do this by selecting the gateway cluster and clicking on Manage administrators at the top.

The tenant admin can then add gateway admins by typing the name or email in the text box and clicking on Add.

Similarly, tenant admins can also remove gateway admins. To do that, you would click on the icon next to the gateway admin of the gateway cluster in question. Clicking on Confirm below would remove the user from the list of gateway administrators.

 

Search

Tenant admins can also use the Search option on the Gateway cluster name and Contact info. In the example below, it is showing gateway clusters with “contoso” in its name.

As always, we would love to hear more from you, learn from your experience and improve based on your feedback. Thank You!
