Identify/extract Data Sources using PersonalGateways

Hello Gurus,

We're going through some Personal Gateways and its usage. We finally turned off the PersonalGateway installs using this simple command


Set-DataGatewayTenantPolicy -PersonalGatewayInstallPolicy Restricted


Also, I am able to identify all existing PersonalGateways via a combination of these commands


Get-DataGatewayCluster -Scope Organization | Where-object {($_.Type -eq "Personal") } 




Get-DataGatewayCluster -Scope Organization | Where-object {($_.Type -eq "Personal") }


Next step is to idenfity all or any datasources/workspaces these personal gateways are being consumed.  Any ideas on how to proceed?

Hi @pvuppala ,

Please check if REST API Gateways - Get Datasources is what you want...

Thats exactly what I mean't when I said to we're planning to have all customers go through Enterprise gateways 🙂 For now, I'm still looking to identify what content is using Personal Gateways so we can notify the customers.  I'm meeting our MS support next week so I will update on our working session.

What's your rationale for caring about that?


Anyway, the tenant audit logs have sections for gateway connection creation/modification. As far as I can tell that includes personal gateways.

The idea behind is to stop folks installing Personalmode and go through an Enteprise Data Gateway for compliance reasons etc.,  We as admins trying to put some guardrails on data sources to make sure customers follow this process.

We solve that differently - by offering the users the option to use our enterprise gateways that have much better performance, guaranteed uptime ( with multiple cluster members each) and full sets of connection drivers. 


Don't forget that personal gateways are required for R and Python scheduled refreshes.
