@LD8219 , If external means cloud then make sure the ip whitelisting is not needed, if needed refer


If external means a datacenter, not a cloud, you might need an on-premise gateway.


Also check need of SSL

Hello Amitchandak thanks por answered, the Database that I want to access from my Datamart is mounted on an external server in Postgres SQL, it is not in the cloud, I do not have administrative permissions on said server, but through my power BI Desktop I can access the database with user and pass and import its tables to build my reports.
From the browser, once I create my Datamart, when I go to obtain the tables of said Database, it throws me the error of the image in the comment below.
The only way to access this data from the Datamart is with an on-premise gateway.??
