++++ Power BI no longer refresh data from Postgres if query are created with latest desktop ver ++++

Dear Microsoft team,

I spent the whole day since suddenly my report stop refreshing automatically after I changed a query against postgres. Never ever faced such error earlier: 

 

---

Underlying error code-2147467259 Table: blablabla.
Underlying error message'EnableFolding' isn't a valid option for this function. Valid options are: (none)

---

 

Now I understand that latest Desktop version creates a m language statement like:

= Value.NativeQuery(PostgreSQL.Database("stpgpsdev.memc.com:5433", "postgres", [CreateNavigationProperties=false]), "select * from gen_site", null, [EnableFolding=true])

while previous version was creting statement like:

= PostgreSQL.Database("scmprddb1.memc.com:5448", "scmprd", [Query="select *, #(lf)planned_gm_date-deliv_date days_delay,#(lf)doc_num||item||shipping_plant as docitemplant#(lf)from shipments#(lf)where matl_grp IN ('EPI','GR1','MMT','SOI','SUBSTRATE')", CreateNavigationProperties=false])

 

There is no problem running the new version from desktop but NOW REFRESH ON SERVER ALWAYS FAILS

 

PLEASE FIX IT!!!!

Have you tried opening the .pbix file from PowerBi.com/GetData?  I've found changes to connections when published via PBI Desktop don't always get updated in PBI Service.  Opening the file via PowerBI.com seems to force the service's copy of the connection to be refreshed with any changes.

I tried to open the file from power bi service following this steps but data refresh still throwing same error. Is this what you meant "with open from Power.com/getData?

Yes, that's what I meant... Go to PowerBI.com, click on "Get Data", go to "File" and open your .pbix.  Opening the file in this manner seems to fix similar issues for me.  I was connecting to a Web API rather than Postgres.  PBI wouldn't update the credentials via online "Data source credentials".  Opening the .pbix file from within the online service seemed to do the trick.

Same happening with me since the recent update. This messes up the auto-refreshes and every time  I have to manually change in the Power Query.

Ok to remove manually [EnableFolding=true]  from the advanced editor.

But without this option, in Power BI Desktop, the Direct Query is no longer working 😞
