Hi @moe_elbohsaly ,


To switch your on-premise connection to Amazon RDS and configure it on, follow these steps:

1.Install Npgsql, which allows .NET access to PostgreSQL. Follow the instructions in these links:

Power Query PostgreSQL connector - Power Query | Microsoft Learn

2.Connect to AWS over SSL
3.Download the AWS public key
4.Convert the key using SSL Converter (Current Certificate Type: Standard PEM, Convert to: P7B/PKCS#7)
5.Apply the certificate by importing it into the Trusted Root Certification Authorities on your local computer.
6.Test access from Power BI Desktop using the PostgreSQL connector.
7.To use it in Power BI Service, create a new data source in the Manage Gateways screen.
