Since Microsoft has certified and distributes Industrial App Store Connector there is no need to use this option. Please get in touch to discuss if you still feel the need for it.

Follow these instructions to install an on-premises data gateway.

Once the gateway is set up, follow these quick steps to install Intelligent Plant Industrial App Store Connector. You will need to contact Intelligent Plant in order to obtain the custom connector file.

Setting up the gateway with IndustrilAppStore Connector

Before reading through the steps below please make sure that your gateway version is at least October 2019 R2 or higher. Here are the steps to configure gateway side of things (this assumes that you have installed it):

  1. Create a directory that the user which is used to run the gateway service can access (READ). I'll use C:/Documents/Connectors/ as an example for further steps.
  2. Put the issued IndustrialAppStore.mez file into C:/Documents/Connectors/.
  3. In gateway application, click Connectors option and navigate to C:/Documents/Connectors/.
  4. Give it a split second and the Industrial AppStore connector should appear in the box above the path. If it hasn't - try restarting the service, if that won't help make sure you have permissions set correctly. There are log files for more information in the gateway installation directory.
  5. If above worked, that's it! Navigate to https://app.powerbi.com/ and configure background data refresh using gateway option (Make sure Allow user's custom data connectors to refresh through this gateway cluster option is ticked, you can find more info here).
