Yellow Brick Connectivity

I'm new the group and I've been trying to connect to my Yellow Bricks database using Power BI.  It's a Postgre SQL platform and for whatever reason I'm getting "This connector requires one or more additional components to be installed before it can be used".  I then created a local ODBC connection successfully to Yellow Bricks however when using ODBC in Power BI, I get the "ERROR [HY000] [Devart][ODBC][PostgreSQL]permission denied to set restricted parameter "transaction_isolation" error.  


Has anyone successfully connected to YB?

I did end up able to connect - since there's no Yellowbrick connector, I'm able to connect to it as a Postres database and everything works as expected. Before I could connect, I had to install npgsql ( - for whatever reason, 4.1.4 is the most recent release that has an MSI) and then it worked just fine. I did get a security error but I disabled SSL on my data source settings and then it was able to connect.

Hi @guntangr,


Based on my research, it is not listed in the supported data sources for Power BI. Also you can come up a new idea about adding the connector of the data source.
