Power BI Service is duplicating the "\" in the UNC path for all of the data sources in one of my Power BI report.
It refreshes fine in PBI Desktop but when I publish to Service I can't connect the dataset to our Enterprise Gateway and schedule it to refresh becasue of the file path errors. Here's the format of the data source link that PBI Service is looking for:
Have you tried to modify the source path and remove the "\" once it has been uploaded to the Power BI Service and see if that works? You could possibly create a parameter for your source, so that you can change it in the Power BI Service once it has been uploaded.
Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!
Gilbert, thanks for the reply. I have not tried the parameter idea, I will explore it, thanks for the tip.
On your first thought, I'm not sure how to moidfy the source path once the file has been uploaded to the Service, can you tell me how to do that? The report is pointing to the embedded dataset, which is where the data source errors must be. I can't find away to modify the data source path within the uploaded dataset.
Thanks for the idea Gilbert but we tried that too and it didn't work either.
We have 31 data files in that directory and the only way we can connect the dataset to the gateway is if we add each individual file as a data source. We cannot simply reference the Folder, it won't work. Very strange since it works in other datasets but it will not work in this one and the other datasets share many of the same queries.
