Connecting Power Bi to D365 Entity Store via Azure Data Lake Gen2

Hi all


I'm trying to connect Power BI to a D365 entity store replica in a Azure Data Lake Gen2 storage account. Currently, we have AggregateMeasures replicated in the storage account, but when I try to connect them in PowerBI I get the following error:


DataSource.Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.


I'm using the Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 connector with CDM folder view, as I can see the model.json files in the data lake for the various AggregateMeasures, but I'm not sure why I'm seeing this error.


Could anyone point me in the right direction for getting this connection up and running so that I can build reports in Power BI with this data?
