Custom Data Connectors on Power BI Service

Hi 

 

I am using the example custom data connector "Hello World"  to test refresh using the On-Premises gateway in Personal Mode as recommended. 

 

I have downloaded and started the gateway but getting the following errors - hope somebody can help please?

 

Thanks

@LON,

Have you implemented a “TestConnection” section in your custom connector’s code.

Hi @v-yuezhe-msft 

 

We are having same issue as above and not sure if the below line code is required to add in the custom connector through Visual studio. customer connector is created for web api using basic login type.
 
TestConnection = (dataSourcePath) => { "Nameofyourcustomconnectorproject.Contents" },
 
Thanks
