Attach a Common Data Model - External CDM folder can't resolve inherited entity

Hi All,

I've created DataFlow using External CDM folder in data lake. I'm trying to retrieve entity data by providing appropriate manifest and entity json files. I would like to use entity inheritance feature like this:

This works in EntityViewer (GitHub) - appropriate entity and its properties are visible but not in Power BI desktop.

Here is base entity config:

Can someone help me to resolve this issue? ExtendsEntity feature is very important in using.

And also can't find planned dates to release that feature, can it be shared please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Ailsa-msft , 

thanks for your response.

In Entity Viewer I can see my Entity strcture and properties which I assume means that configuration is OK(its the same configs as in screenshots above):

However Power BI shows empty screen once I moved the same files/configs to Data Lake:

When Location.cdm.json explicitly has properties without inheritance (without ExtendsEntity) then Power BI shows Location entry and its data in this screen.

 

Could you please help me with that?
