Hi @Anonymous ,


You can connect to Azure SQL with both direct query mode and import mode, For direct query mode, you don't need to configure scheduled refresh.


For configuring scheduled in import mode, All you have to do is go to setting select the Datasets option there you can configure credential and the refesh frequency.You don't need to install the gateway if your using AZURE SQL Server DB.


And   please :This won't allow server-side refresh: <database name>

This will allow servers-side refresh: <database name>
