Cannot Connect to CDS by power bi desktop

Hi All,

 

Analyze in Power BI, I will get a .pbids file. However, I cannot connect to the CDS and got the error message. And I canot find the option to enable the function following the online document. btw, My account is Admin. I think that should be a bug?

@Frank_Fei - I think I figured it out:

These settings can be found in the Power Platform admin center by going to Environments > [select an environment] > Settings > Product > Features.image.png

@Frank_Fei So, to be clear, you are getting that error when clicking that button? From the error you admin hasn't enabled the setting to allow it to happen. Probably need to check tenant settings in PowerApps/CDS instance.

 

You could check the Issues forum here:

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/idb-p/Issues

And if it is not there, then you could post it.
