Report has several Dataflows won’t refresh in service

I have a report that is getting all its data via 31 dataflows (PowerBI in the on-premise gateway) and no other datasources.


Refreshes fine in Desktop (about 5-10 minutes) but will not refresh at all when in the service. I keep getting an error that says cannot connect to data source undefined:


Underlying error code: -2147467259
Underlying error message: We're sorry, an error occurred during evaluation.
DM_ErrorDetailNameCode_UnderlyingHResult: -2147467259
Cluster URI:
Activity ID: 4051fbee-5a67-4d14-9f61-cd1446cedc8f
Request ID: 14db3f28-09f8-4e15-beef-38c27ae138c4
Time: 2021-09-23 21:38:55Z


I'm totally stumped and starting to think converting this report from multiple datasources to all dataflows was a mistake?? Help 😞

It's not the dataflows that are failing to refresh. They have all been refreshing flawlessly for months now. The problem is that I connected to them in a report to create a data model. The report using the dataflows is what is failing to refesh. There is no download of the error on a BI report - only what I pasted in the original message.

Sorry missinterpreted "Dataflows won’t refresh in service"

When you goto the dataflow list in power bi service, and cick on refresh history for one of the failed dataflows, then download the refesh log, see pic below

What is the error that it shows. You may have to find the table with the first error.
