Disable Custom Connector option

Has anyone foud a way to permanently disable the options for Data Extensions in Power BI Desktop? We don't want users to be able to select the "Not Recommended" setting but can't find a group policy or registry key we can use to disable that, similar to how we can disable the check for updates, the sign in page, custom visuals, etc.

@klinejordan ,


I'm afraid in power bi desktop we can't disable some built-in feature because there's no such options. However, in power bi service, if you are an admin user, then you can click "Admin Portal"-> "Tenant Settings" to disable some features in your tenant.
