Power BI Desktop - Data Connectivity Mode Option unavailable for Snowflake Connector

Hi,

 

Trying to connect Snowflake from Power BI Desktop. However, I can't see "Data Connectivity Mode" option to choose either Import or Direct Query. Is this the case with the latest version of Power BI Desktop? Any details please.

Hi @vr_2020 

You will see the connection mode after filling up fields and clicking OK.

Sorry, I was thinking other. 

You will get this option once you provided all the details and click on Ok. On next step you will receive import and direct query modes. 

If you are still not getting this might be due to saved connections you are unable to get that option. Then try clearing permissions on  data source settings.

@vr_2020 , 

 

For snowflake database you can only connect on import mode.

@manikumar34 and @aj1973 Thanks for the response. It worked, can see Connection Settings through Get Data --> Database  -> Snowflake (with Server and Warehouse details filled up ) --> Navigator --> Connection Settings

2) However, as per these links Connectivity Mode (Import and Direct Query) option is available in Snowflake window to choose rather than in further steps.
