PowerBI Web Application connection to SQL database

So I am wondering if it is possible to be able to export data from PowerBI online to SQL (and potentially vice versa)?


Currently I have PowerBI Desktop exportig to SQL and then SQL back to PowerBI Desktop. But I'm wondering if the same thing is possible using the web application, since I can set auto refreshes using the PBI Service.


From what I've researched, it doesn't seem likely. But I have yet to find a definitive "no" as the answer. So here I am.
