Can`t link more cubes in DirectQuery

Hi,

Using directQuery, I want to extract data from different cubes. However when I connect my first cube I do not have the option to get a new one.

 

Is this something standard? Should I create a new cube with all the data which I need? i.e. I need Sales (FI - AR) & Materials (CO - PA)

What is your advise to show everything in my Dashboard?

 

Really appreciate your help and advice. 

 

Kind regards,

Re: Can`t link more cubes in DirectQuery

Hi @PabloMaldonado,

 

This is currently a known limitation that when using Direct Query Mode or connect live with Power BI Desktop, you are limited to just one data source/database you selected.
