Dataflow Payload error

I'm trying to setup a Dataflow in PBI Premium Workspace.  When I hit the "Refresh Now" icon I'm recieving this error. 

Any ideas what might be the issue?


Error: An internal error occurred...
RootActivityId = 75b840ef-ecab-48a7-ad6a-ccdab0c66f25.Param1 =
Received error payload from gateway service with ID 663900:
An exception encountered while creating the target data source.
Request ID: e7e1825a-45e7-07ae-f46a-bf64a2ff04e7.

Hi @pokdbz,


Could you restart the Data Gateway service for a try?

That had no effect.  I'm still getting the payload error.

Same error for me.  This is the 1st entity that I've tried creating since enabling Dataflows in the tenant.

I was able to fix the error by updating my on prem data gateway to the April version.
