Hi @AlaaAlmaghrbi,

AFAIK, power bi not only allow you to use SQL connector to get data but also other type of data drivers with correspond connection strings.(you need ensure this type of channels are enable on azure SQL side)

BTW, what type of data connector/driver are you wanted use to getting data? Can you please share some more detail?
