The module that you mentioned is for node.js only. I don't think that it might be used on client side.

If you wanto to use MS SQL server in your custom visual you should create an own backend server that connects to the sql server or use Active X but this way isn't secure.

Hello @marcobaciga

 

Could you please share name of the module?

Please note that it would be better to use Power BI data import to connect to SQL Server and any other data-bases.
