Web data sources asking for a gateway connection

Hi Community, 


I'm building a dashboard that uses all web sources and would like to configure it to refresh on a daily basis. Everything refreshes find on the desktop. 


I've uploaded it to Power BI Service but have come up against this error. How do I debug it? Can anyone help?

Thanks @v-jingzhang , I got it working. Albeit with a different data source - lucky Iron Ore prices are published on multiple different websites. I used the Web.BrowserContents to Web.Contents solution. Cheers!

So I've narrowed it down to this data source:


I'd like to grab the latest price for the first month in the table (at time of posting this was Dec 2020). 


I can access it fine on desktop but when I refresh on Power BI service it gives me this error: 


"This dataset requires a properly configured gateway in order to refresh." 


Is it possible to connect to this table without a gateway?
