Can't connect to Sharepoint Online using PowerBI Service

When I connect to SharePoint online from PowerBI Desktop I have no problem. However, when I try to connect to a list in SharePoint Online from PowerBI Service I can not find the option. I'm talking about creating a new data source located in SharePoint Online, I'm not talking about refreshing an existing source.

 

Somebody can help me? Thanks in advance!

If you are talking about doing this solely through the Service, I am not aware of any option to do this when you go to Get Data. The process is to do this in Desktop, Publish and then refresh in the Service.

@GermanCano,

It is possible to directly connect to SharePoint Online file using "Get data->Files" option in Power BI Service, but it is not possible to directly connect to SharePoint online list in Power BI Service. Please use Power BI Desktop as Greg_Deckler's post.
