Power BI Desktop: Blob Storage Data Not letting me select path

I am trying to Import data from Azure Blob Storage via Power Bi Desktop. The issue I am runnign into is that as soon as I enter our Blob Storage Credentials, it automatically starts loading the large sum of data, I recall that there is a naviagtor that lets you specify a particular path. Why does that not appear before uploading.

Re: Power BI Desktop: Blob Storage Data Not letting me select path

Hi @bdiouf,


According to your description, after you entering the Blob Storage Credentials, Power BI load the data automatically. Right?


Generally the Navigator will appear just after you connecting to Azure Blob Storage. And I have made some tests in my environment (Feb 2018 update). However I didn't encounter your issue. Please refer:




After entering the Access Keys, Power BI did not load data antomatically and the Navigator shown up. You can select your needed source here.




So in your scenario, what are the steps you connecting to blob storage and could you please share us some screenshots based on your issue if possible?
