another  question ,

in the web i findout this:

Consuming a dataflow

A dataflow can be consumed in the following three ways:

  • Create a linked entity from the dataflow to allow another dataflow author to use the data

  • Create a dataset from the dataflow to allow a user to utilize the data to create reports

  • Create a connection from external tools that can read from the CDM format

Consuming from Power BI Desktop To consume a dataflow, run Power BI Desktop and select the Power BI dataflows connector in the Get Data dialog.

 

can i consume dataflow output data directly in a new report created in pbi service... here in the web i see only that i can read it from pbi desktop...
