PowerBI support for OneDrive Personal as data source

[ Edited ]

I would like to use PowerBI for desktop to create model where some data (.txt or .xlsx files) comes from personal OneDrive.
I would like to use this with PowerBI free license. So if I deploy to PowerBI service, I would not need Gateway running on my PC and refresh would be done from OneDrive personal drive.

Are there any plans to support OneDrive Personal as data source for PowerBI for Desktop and then online service?

Hi Vidas,

 

We are working on some additional connectivity scenarios from PBI Desktop to the PBI Service that should allow you to achive your scenario (without using the gateway). Stay tuned.

Lana, "New Message" button is greyed out, so I cannot post question in separate thread.

Re: PowerBI support for OneDrive Personal as data source

I know this works when pointing POwer BI desktop to the .xlsx file on One Drive for Business. I don't know how to do this with One Drive personal (there does not seem to be a direct URL), therefore, we cannot upload to the PBI service and refresh using One Drive personal. Any updates on this?
