Power BI embedded Azure data lake connection

Hi,

 

I'm buildind a Power BI Embedded with a Azure data lake file as data source.

I built it in PBI Desktop and uploaded to workspace and showed OK to an application.

Now I need to refresh the data but I don't know how to setup an credential to Azure Data Lake.

Could you provide an connection string example?

 

Tks.

Power BI Embedded doesn't support DirectQuery mode to the datasources other than Azure SQL Database/Data warehouse and there's no any refresh feature for it.

 

By the way, the Power BI Embedded is being deprecated. In the new replacement "Embedding with non-Power BI users", you can set up refresh for the Azure Data Lake.
