In this chapter, you learned about some of the database interaction capabilities of Power Automate. Following the steps in this chapter, you were able to successfully create an Azure SQL Server instance, a database, and a database table to store content. You were able to connect to the database, create a flow, and insert a new row of data. Finally, you examined the run history of the flow and learned how to query the database directly.

The next chapter will build on this knowledge by showing you how to take Microsoft Forms data and insert it into a database using Power Automate.
