Cant add ML Model to Dataflow - help with error message



After getting my Power BI Dedicated Capacity set up with AI workloads and Dataflows active, I have tried to create an ML model using the dataflow and get the following message pop up:


"Machine Learning Models Disabled

Training and inferences for machine learning models are disabled for this capacity instance. Please enable this setting in the admin portal to use your machine learning models"


As I say AI workloads are enabled and active. Is there another setting I need to switch on somewhere? I have looked in both the tenant and capacity settings, but cant find one, plus google has revealed nothing. Everywhere says that enabling AI workload is enough to enable ML models.

Hi @dom99


Please make sure "Dataflow" is enabled for Tenant . Go to Admin Portal -> "Tenant Setting" -> Enable Dataflow. Also ensure the AI workload is enabled for the capacity.

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft 


Thanks for the reply, I have enabled both dataflows and AI workloads.


From the power bi blog post yesterday there seems to be a couple of capacity settings we are both missing

These settings looks exactly what I am looking for, any ideas why I cant see them? Are they not released yet?

We're facing the same issue: we receive the error "Machine learning models are disabled" and the "Allow building machine learning models" and "Enable Parallelism for AI Reports" options are not available. We were part of the machine learning beta program and the ability to create these models has been disabled since the feature was made generally available. I've tried disabling the feature and reenabling, but no luck.

I've raised a support ticket and after a number of calls with the support team they have passed the issue to the product team, so hopefully a fix coming soon. I was told it could take a couple of days for them to get back to me.
