Hello everybody,


I am trying to configure the data flow to work in my computer. Ii is an Access file located in my computer. I have installed a data gateway. But... I dont know what do I have to enter in the next boxes:


Connection settings


File path or URL



On-premises data gateway

[Admin] Chema Portatil DEVOTEAM


Authentication kind



User name (domain\alias)

I don't know what do I have to enter here. I have tried with my windows user, my hotmail email,... everything!!! 




Error: Invalid credentials


I don't know wether I am entering some fields with errors or not.... I suppose yes... But don´t know where...


Can anyone help me with this,please?


Thanks a lot. Best regards,


Chema Ortega

Hi. Domain in this case is your computer name. In company, it means the name of the accounts, like the name in your email.

In order to check your pc name go to windows -> This PC -> Right click properties -> check the name.


Then you can add the configuration like

Username (Domain\Alias): PcName\username


Hope this helps,
