Because the gateway runs on the computer that you install it on, be sure to install it on a computer that’s always turned on. For better performance and reliability, we recommend that the computer is on a wired network rather than a wireless one.
- Enter the User Principal Name (UPN) or email address for your Office 365 organization account, and then select Sign in.
The gateway is associated with your UPN or Office 365 organization account. You manage gateways from within the associated service. You’re now signed into your account.
- Select Register a new gateway on this computer and then select Next.
- Enter a name for the gateway. The name must be unique across the tenant. Also enter a recovery key. You’ll need this key if you ever want to recover or move your gateway.
Note the Add to an existing gateway cluster checkbox. We’ll use this checkbox in the next section of this document.
Also note that you can change the region that connects the gateway to cloud services. For more information, see Set the data center region.
- Review the information in the final window. Because this example uses the same account for Power BI, Power Apps, and Power Automate, the gateway is available for all three services. Select Close.
Now that you’ve installed a gateway, you can add another gateway to create a cluster.
