Azure Data Lake connection set-up OK but Option won't stay On in Workspace settings



I have a situation whilst connecting Power BI to a new Azure Data Lake.


In short:


  • I follow all the instructions and I can connect successfully to Power BI - see screen shot
  • I can see a powerbi container created in the Blob
  • I can select the option when creating a new workspace with no errors
  • I create a new dataflow all fine but it is not putting anything in the container
  • So I check workspace settings and it is set to off - see screen shot
  • I can turn it on without error and save
  • Then when I look again it is set to off 

I'm lost, with no error messages I have no idea what is causing this. Has anybody else experienced this issue?
