Re: Data Management Gateway to Salesforce

In theory, maybe. See this link for supported data sources:


Since it supports Power Query, if you can connect to your Salesforce via Power Query with something like an OData feed or Salesforce Objects or Salesforce Reports, then maybe.


I say maybe because there are also supported authentication types buried in that link. 


The new Power BI Preview connects to Salesforce, there is a content pack for it so you might want to start looking down that route as my understanding is that everything is headed that way.

I have book! Learn Power BI from Packt

The Gatway is required to connect to on premise data sources. You should be able to connect to Salesforce without the Gateway.
