Data source SFTP - Can we yet? If not any options?

Nothing else to ask, just have done research hoping this is easier than what I have seen.

Hi @Razorbx13 ,

I'm afraid currently power bi doesn't have built-in SFTP connector. (refer:Power BI data source)

But you can use a very straightforward tool, called Microsoft Power Automate. With Power Automate, you can automate several tasks to move data from a SFTP / FTP source to a Sharepoint folder or OneDrive, so Power BI can read the data there.  After the data is loaded into Sharepoint or OneDrive, you can easily connect your Power BI with these sources.

And you could use Microsoft Flow to connect to SFTP source.
