Re: Power BI Dataflow to Azure Data Lake Gen2 Setup

Hi @yehong, what about changing the ADLS Gen2 account to be associated with Power BI?

What about if I need to move my storage account to another subscription?

 

Thanks,

Elisa

You can move the storage account between subscriptions and resource-groups as long as it's kept under the same tenant.

Re: Power BI Dataflow to Azure Data Lake Gen2 Setup

@yehong thanks for your reply, is it possible to do it from the Power BI Service Admin Portal? At the moment I'm not able to change what I specified in Dataflow storage (preview) under https://app.powerbi.com/admin-portal/dataflows. Thanks again, Elisa

Re: Power BI Dataflow to Azure Data Lake Gen2 Setup

At the moment we're not caching the subscription id and resource-group name therefore there is no action you should take in Power BI portal. Please note that the storage should be kept under the same tenant.

Re: Power BI Dataflow to Azure Data Lake Gen2 Setup

Ok, just to see if I've understood correctly: I can move the ADLS2 storage to another subscription and resource group, as far as: - they are under the SAME tenant - the ADLS2 storage name remains the SAME In the future it will be possible to unlink/link storage accounts? Or to have more than one storage account to manage (and then decide from time to time which storage account to link to which Power BI Workspace)?

You understood correctly.

 

We're always trying to improve the experience we deliver:

1. Can share why you're looking to move a storage to a different subscription / resource-group?

2. Link/Unlink storage accounts - can you please create a new idea in Power BI community? explaining why do you need this functionality / how you expect it to behave?

3. Multiple storage accounts - can you please create a new (separate) idea in Power BI community? explaining why do you need this functionality / how you expect it to behave?

 

You can add new Power BI Ideas here: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas

 

Please share links to these ideas once created so others can add their voice as well !

Re: Power BI Dataflow to Azure Data Lake Gen2 Setup

Hi @yehong,

 

I'm looking to move the ADLS2 used by Power BI Dataflows to a different subscription / resource-group because at the beginning I used for testing purpose my Visual Studio MPN Subscription, but now I want to move the ADLS2 to a pay-as-you-go subscription within the same tenant.

 

As you suggested, I've just created two new Power BI ideas

https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/36495421-support-multiple-azure-d...

 

...waiting for your comments, suggestions and hopefully votes! ;-)

Re: Power BI Dataflow to Azure Data Lake Gen2 Setup

Hi all,

 

The problem is resolved after updating the azure storage explorer and adding Power BI service as a reader role on the data lake storage account.

 

Thank you all for the wonderful support,

 

Thanks
