use multiple Data source in one pbix file SQL Server and SSAS

My main goal is the compare the enterprise Data in SQL Server with the Data in SSAS that I develop to facilitate the compare the quality of the data calculated and the original values.

 

So I m looking for a way to automatize this process instead of developing the report using SSAS and giving it to end-users to compare with the data in SQL Server, I wanna  combine those Data in one power BI file to gain time 

 

Can I combine those two sources of Data SQL Server and SSAS in one file or there is another manner to achieve this goal?

 

I'll be glad if someone can help me

Hi @ikramelmbarki ,

You can't use Direct Query for SQL Server and Live connection for SSAS. For live connection mode, you cannot explore live data and connect to another type of data source in the same file. When you try to do it, you will get the below disable warning.

So as @amitchandak suggests, if you want to connect to SQL Server and SSAS at the same time, you should use import mode.

For more details, please refer to the documentation: DirectQuery, Live Connection or Import Data? Tough Decision!
