Power BI Enterprise Gateway, should it recognize Server and Database name within Parameters?

Hello everyone - 

 

When I publish my Power Bi solution it will uses my server and database name to match the data-source in enterprise gateway for connection.  If it finds the match then will connect to my data-source under the current gateway.  If I create a Power Bi solution with two Parameters (one used for Server and other for Database name) then it looks like it can’t find the data-source under gateway.  Is this correct and how can I get around it?  

 

Thank you

Do you mean after you've selected the Server and Database in the PBIX and tried to publish?

Or are you trying to Publish without selecting the parameters? (Because this isn't currently supported in the Power BI Service yet)

Thank you @Seth_C_Bauer ,  after I selected the Server and Database in the PBIX

  • Manage Parameters > prmServerName > CurrentValue > MyServerName  
  • Manage Parameters > prmDatabaseName > CurrentValue > MyDBName

and then I publish.  

 

 

Update:

I recreated my solution and this time it did work.  Thanks for your response.

 

Thank you again
