Dataflows: How to configure BYOSA?

From the Dataflows documentation: "Power BI can be configured to store dataflow data in your organization’s Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 account."

 

I don't see anything letting you select your own ADLSG2 account from Power BI's Admin Portal > Tenant settings in the Dataflow settings section. Where do you set that up?

Re: Dataflows: How to configure BYOSA?

Hi @otravers

From the articleData is stored as entities in the Common Data Model in Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2. 

I can't find any option to select your own ADLSG2 account from Power BI's Admin Portal > Tenant settings in the Dataflow settings section. 

Based on my understand, when you create a dataflow in power bi service, the dataflow data is stored by default in the Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2. ADLSG2 account is assicoated with your power bi account as you follow the right steps to create a dataflow.

Yes, I also could not find any setting or documentation related to using your own gen2 storage. This capability has been referenced in several places, but there is no documentation or roadmap set out for this capability. Hopefully, more information is posted soon.

Re: Dataflows: How to configure BYOSA?

Hey,

 

at this state of the dataflows release, it's not possible to connect the "target" of a dataflow to an existing ADLS g2. This will change over time and will be available before dataflows will become GA.

 

Currently I have no information when dataflows will become GA.
