Can't See Dataflow and its Entities in PBI Desktop

Hi, 

 

I was just trying out the Dataflows features, following exactly the steps in here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/power-bi/service-dataflows-create-use

 

However, for some reasons, I'm not able to see the Dataflows when trying to connect to it in Power BI Desktop. I tried refreshing the things under Dataflows and made sure that the account I'm using is an Admin.

 

Would really appreciate if any of you can help. Thank you in advance.

Hi @ayyowasssup ,

 

It may because you saved the Power BI dataflows permissions information of another account in Power BI Desktop, the connect information may not be the same as the Power BI Desktop account.

 

We can try to use “Files” – “Options and settings” – “data source Settings”, then find “Power BI Dataflows” in “Global Permission”, then clear Permissions of it.

 

Connect the Power BI Dataflows again and sign in as the current user, then you can see the Dataflows of your current account.
