I haven't reproduced this issue.

 

What source is your ODBC connecting to?

 

Can you connect it properly in Power BI Desktop? If so, please verify the connection string, authentiation type and credential.

 

If it still doesn't work, please delete all ODBC data source under this gateway, re-publish/import your .pbix file. Then create the ODBC data source again.

Thank's for reply @v-sihou-msft.

 

My ODBC data source is configured in my server where Power BI Gateway is installed. My ODBC is for connecting to DB2 database.

And when i tried to connect to this ODBC with PowerBI Desktop, it's working.
