I am creating a dashboard to monitor SQL Agent jobs on Power BI Dashboard for different servers in my network. I have connected one data source with the direct query and when I am trying to connect the second data source with the direct query it popping up a caution to change into import mode. my question was How to connect the two more databases with the direct query?

I think an alternative to solve your question, but you need Power BI Services. You can create differents reports per each data source by direct query in power BI desktop, then publish them in power bi service. Finally create a dashboard that shows a mix of report parts.

It seems there is solution for the same.
Mention the same "Database" name in both the SQL Server DB popup and
In advanced query(where we are refering to another DB ) refer the table in the query with DB name
eg select * from Databasename.dbo.tablename
This worked for me while direct query was intact !!
