hi, @JulioXY

When i restart the power bi, i cannot find the database i connected with but i can see it in the data source management.

 

Do you save the pbix file when you restart the power bi?

1. You may click Home ->Recent Sources

2.Check If you turn off the Enable load Function in Edit Queries

Hi Lin,

 

Thank you for replying. Unfortunately I can't see it also in the recent connections. however i can see it in the data source settings under the global permission.

It means that you are Edit Queries, after you end "shape data" in Edit Queries, do not click Close the icon in the upper right corner, Please click Home->Close&Apply
