Just started this week - DATAFLOW table does not show up in Power BI desktop



Starting this week ~11/14/19, when creating a new DATAFLOW table, we cannot see it when trying to use GET DATA>DATAFLOW in Power BI desktop. We can see the DATAFLOW folder, but nothing shows underneath the folder when double clicking or refreshing it. Previously created DATAFLOWS (<11/14/19) are visible and OK. 


I know there was a lot of functionality pushed for DATAFLOW this week, so I am wondering if this is related?


Any ideas?





Confirmed that it is a date field issue, once I changed the date field (which showed UNCLASSIFIED) to TEXT in the DATAFLOW, then I was able to see the table and import it into Power BI desktop. I then changed the TEXT > DATE.

Why does the Microsoft Power BI Support page say "No known issues: Power BI is running smoothly" ?


This is a HUGE issue that my team has spend hours trying to chase down.  Had it posted on the support page, it would have saved us a lot of grief.

Agree the communication of this issue (seemingly wide impact) could have been better, so users including myself don't have to waste time investigating.  I raised a ticket through our enterprise admin portal.

What a mess.  Glad MS is on it.  Please fix ASAP, clients are driving me crazy.

Same exact issue. Someone must learn Microsoft to do proper testing before releasing new changes!!!

Having the same exact issue. A couple of the tables in the dataflow show up but not all of them. No refresh errors or anything. I've even tried deleted and re-adding them with no dice. 


Half of our environment is down because of it.
