DifferentSource - HELP!

Hi everyone,

Im trying to connect a data source with a parameter but no how Power BI offers.

The thing is that I have two kind of client, the one who use Hana connection and the other that use SQL.

What Im trying to do is something like this:

 

-Create Source Parameters for each one

 

    SQLSource = Sql.Database("server","bd")

    HANASource = SapHana.Database("serverhana")

 

-One parameter to point one of them

    ConnectionSource = SQLSource

    or

    ConnectionSource = HANASource

 

-Finally get this

 

    Source = ConnectionSource

 

Why I'm trying to do this? because I want to avoid to have two reports/forms one for each kind of client.

There's any way to make it?

 

Thanks for your time Smiley Very Happy

Hi @aroldan,

 

Perhaps you can try to use below conditional query if it suitable for your requirement.


Comment: When ServerName and databaseName are null, use sql connector; if databaseName is null, use hana connector, otherwise return null.

 

let
    SQLOrHana= (ServerName as text, databaseName) =>
    let
        Source= if ServerName <> null and databaseName <> null 
                then Sql.Database(ServerName,databaseName) else 
                if databaseName = null and ServerName <> null then SapHana.Database("serverhana") 
                else null
    in
        Source
in
    SQLOrHana
