Automatic data refresh to postgreSQL via ODBC and SSH Tunnel

Hi everyone, 


I am trying to automate the data refresh in Power BI Service. 

Locally, I have a connection via ODBC to a postgreSQL in AWS and have to also open up the SSH tunnel via my Command Prompt. 

Is there a way of automating the last step as well or rather: is there a odbc connection via SSH in Power BI Service?


Thank you in advance!

Have you considered trying to create this connection in a gateway (even though technically a gateway is not required)?
