Enterprise Gateway, How do I configure a dateset to use it?

Hi,

 

I have installed Enterprise Gateway and configured it within BI, It's all connected.

 

I now want to be able to migrate my exisiting datasets to use this new gateway. Before I had a tick box under setting, but no nothing.

 

I contacted Microsoft over 1 week or so ago and I have heard nothing from them.

 

Any help appreciated.

Exactly the same issue here...  I have uninstalled my personal gateway but somehow powerbi still uses the uninstalled personal gateway to publish datasets and there seems to be no way to move it to the installed server gateway datasource.  Would really appreciate any help as I am working to meet a tight deadline!

HI,

 

I have not heard anything back yet, My ticket was opened on the 4th December, really really poor customer service from Microsoft. They say the are busy. I dread to think what the backlog must be then!

 

So as yet no solution.

 

Thanks Craig

Hi @falagar

 

Some answers after a lengthy chat with Microsoft on their chat on the BI website.

 

  1. Enterprise gateway ONLY works with DirectQuery
  2. You cannot connect existing reports to it. http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/How-can-I-switch-the-connection-setting-from-Import-to/m-p/1...
  3. You will have to build new reports select DirectQuery at the point of choosing your data source. I strongly recomment reading the info from the article in 2 as this answers most of the questions.
  4. When you then publish your report using DirectQuery, it will automatically use the enterprise gateway, you d not have to provide credentials as you do with the Personal gateway.

Thanks
