Merged Queries working with the Data Gateway

I have 2 queries, one is an Excel file one is a SQL ODBC query.  I can publish both easiliy and the data gateway can refresh both.


However, if I merge them in Power BI Desktop to create a mergerd query, then publish to power BI, the data gateway will not refresh.



I am facing the same issue, I am mergeing Excel Online data with On-Prem SQL data and to over come this  issue I had to use Personal Mode Gateway for the refreshes. This is good but the Personal Mode Gateway has limitations when compared to Enterprise Gateway. This is a bug that needs to be fixed. Is there a way I can use Enterprise Gateway with a merged query?

I realise this is an old thread but it's the one I found when searching for merging queries between gateway and cloud (SQL Server and Salesforce in my case) and it doesn't have the solution that worked for me. I had to go into the gateway cluster settings in the PBI web service and tick the box to allow cloud data sources to refresh through the gateway.
