Re: My source is now in shared folder which gateway can create

Set up "Folder" in your On Premise Gateway (via Manage Gateways) to use the full path such as '\\Computer\Folder\File.xlsx'

 

When you use 'Get Data' you need to use the exact same full path.  So  '\\Computer\Folder\File.xlsx' will work but 'C:\Folder\File.xlsx' wont.

 

You can update an existing data connection under the "Edit Queries" area in Power BI Desktop.  Select the table and click on the advanced editor.  The first row after "Let" should have a connection string with the Full path.  You can check/update this.

Re: My source is now in shared folder which gateway can create

Hello,

can you tell me please which credentials to use?

I have the on-premises gateway on serverA and data files stored on serverB. 

on serverB there is a local user: serverB\user he has read rights to the shared folder \\serverB\folder\

I can access this folder from PBI Desktop without any problem.

if I upload the pbix to the service and try under manage gateway to add gateway.

the fullpath is \\serverB\folder\file.csv

the username I am using is serverB\user and the right password.

I always get AccessUnauthorized, any hint how to procceed?

what are the needed credentials? do I need to map th shared folder from serverA

(I can access the folder and files from serverA on serverB with the serverB\user)
