What is Gateway?
Gateway is an application and it provides the connection between Power BI cloud services and the data source located on-premises.
Using gateway you can schedule refresh the datasets on cloud. You can installed this application on any servers in the local domain.
Gateway is required- If the data source is located on-premises, then you need a gateway. Means, any local files, whether they are on a virtual machine or your local desktop, will require a data gateway.
For example- If you are fetching data from SQL Server database located on your local domain server, then you need a gateway.
Not required– for online or cloud-based data sources. For example- if you are getting data from CRM Online, Azure SQL DB, Azure Blob Storage etc., you don’t need a gateway.
On-premises data gateway (personal mode)
Only you can use this, and you can use it only for scheduling refresh in Power BI. The Live Connection connectivity mode, PowerApps, Logic Apps, Microsoft Flow are not supported.
