Template APPS sample data

I have a problem with template apps and sample data load.

 

My application uses the connector with Azure cost, and I cannot use real data as sample data

I loade sample data from an excel file on oneDrive. 

To load the data I use a parameter,

* if  the value is TEST  I load the sample 

* if you enter a different value , It connects to Azure and, if the EA and authentication are valid, download the data.

 

In power BI desktop it works fine and, if you put a false EA value in the parameter it gives an error but never tries to connect with onedrive (as I said before this only does so if the parameter value is TEST)

 

Now, when I create the template application in PowerBi service and select "Connect your data", it asks me to authenticate to Onedrive even if I don't set the parameter value to TEST. Why?

 

The question is, As sample data are mandatory, how do I charge the sample data if it is not from an excel file?

 

Thank you

Re: Template APPS sample data

Hi @SEACHAD ,

 

There may be a default connect value with OneDrive when you create the Template app, see details: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-template-apps-create#create-the-test-template-app.

 

If you need to change the data source, you can update your App.

 

Best Regards,
