Preview: Data source management

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]

In the Data page of the Power Platform admin center (https://admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com), you can view and manage Power BI cloud and on-premises data sources and gateway clusters. The on-premises data sources on this page include all on-premises data source definitions for gateways you administer. The cloud data sources on this page are cloud connections in your published Power BI reports.

This article describes managing data sources. For information on managing gateway clusters, see Preview: On-premises data gateway management.
