Unable to set up scheduled refresch for Datasets that include a Webconnection

When i publish a Dataset with a Webconnection i'm not able to set up a scheduled refresh for that specific dataset. PowerBI Service tells me to provide data source credentials for "at least one data source". But the option for the Data Source-Editing Pane is greyed out. Wich i really don't understand. It's a public reachable Website like Wikipedia. 

Or i should use a gateway. But that shouldn't be necessary either.

Does somebody else having trouble with datasets like this?

 

Regards

Hi @Bjuu,

 

If you are using Web.Page function in your Power Query ( you can check it in Query Editor -> Advanced Editor), it requires gateway after publishing the report to Power BI service. See: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/refresh-data#local-files-and-files-on-onedrive-or-sharepoi...

 

You can use on-premise data gateway or on-premises data gateway (personal mode)
