Web content requires personal gateway - why?

If I publish a report from CSV files on SharePoint OL everything works as expected.

Then I add an external public web source (http://www.geonames.org/countries/) and all of the sudden published report says it can't connect to (required) personal gateway (PG) which is again expected as I haven't got one).

 

Why is PG required in this scenario?

Re: Web content requires personal gateway - why?

@JozeM

 

Power BI team are currently working on improving the refresh of cloud based data sources. As part of this, one of the changes they have made recently is that new datasets that leverage import from Web pages will not be automatically configured for refresh in Power BI service, and will require the use of a gateway. Please consider using the Personal Gateway or On-Premises data gateway if you would like to use this capability. They are working on removing this restriction in the future.

 

You can keep an eye on this post.

 

Best Regards,

Herbert
