Hello all;


I am trying to connect to files that i store in Azure data lake store but I receive the following error.  We have updated our active directory (ADFS) and ensured that this is up to date. Would you please provide some hints and tips.

Re: Error when connect to azure data lake

Hi @AndrewDang


Is the error in Power BI Desktop?  Or when refreshing from Power BI Web Service?

Hi @AndrewDang,

You can upload the data from azure data lake to Power BI desktop correctly, while you get error when you create any visualization in Power BI desktop? Could you please share more details for further analysis?

Best Regards,

Hello, First you need to make sure you have colaboration permisions in DL, then you will use the url link to connet to DL using the credecial you use to loging to your Azure portal. If you using Aug version you will have limitation on the page size but you can incressed the size accordingly I know up to 1TB in Bytes can be use in page size.
