Unable to create linked entity in dataflow

I am unable to create a linked entity when working with dataflows. I get a logon screen with a grayed out Sign in button. 

Screen Shot 2019-04-23 at 3.25.57 PM.png

 

Is this normal? What do I need to do to get this working?

 

I simply want to aggregate some data in a dataflow. Is there another way to do this?

Following the tutorial here:

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/custom/page/page-id/PowerBI_Welcome

This implies I need to created a computed entity from a linked dataflow to accomplish this.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi @juls858

 

Based on my test with new app workspace version which has Premium P1 capacity, it's able to create a Linked Entity. Please go through this document to check linked entities: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-dataflows-linked-entities

 

As you mentioned "I simply want to aggregate some data in a dataflow", you can do aggregation directly in the dataflow directly, without adding a linked entity. Please share some screenshots to show the sample data and clarify desired aggregation results.
