Can't create entity in DataFlow

Hi,

 

I'm trying to explore the new dataflow feature of PBI Service to import a simple csv file.

 

These are the credentials I'm using, but it is returning the error "invalid credentials", why?

Re: Can't create entity in DataFlow

Hi @webportal,

 

1. Since it's a Windows authentication, please check if your account has enough permission. 

2. One DataFlow can only use one Gateway. Please don't change the gateway when you add more entities. 

 

Best Regards,

Re: Can't create entity in DataFlow

Hi,
The file is stored in OneDrive, I have permission for it.
There's only one Gateway in this account.

Hi @webportal,

 

I did it like below successfully. Please check out.

1. Can you add other files in other folders?

2. What's the file path? At least share the format.

Note: though the file is in OneDrive, it also has a copy locally.

Re: Can't create entity in DataFlow

Hi @webportal,

 

Please check out the data gateway if there is any gateway been created automatically. If there is an error message like below, please share it with me. 

I would also suggest you file support ticket here. It's a weird issue.

Re: Can't create entity in DataFlow

If you are trying to connect to a file in OneDrive you need to use its web address (not the file path in your PC) and then enter your credentials under the type Organizational Account.
