dataflows: Extension("extensionDataSourceKind":"PowerBI" cannot be added to gateway

Extension("extensionDataSourceKind":"PowerBI" cannot be added to gateway
So, I get this error trying to set up a report on power bi service.

 

Dataflows are the only data source for the report. Should I even schedule refreshes, or will it happen automatically when the dataflows refresh?

Hi there

As far as I am aware, currently you cannot use an existing Power BI dataset in dataflows.

With regards to a dataflow, you will have to first refresh the dataflow to get the new data in, before you refresh your Power BI dataset.

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Re: dataflows: Extension("extensionDataSourceKind":"PowerBI" cannot be added to

Thanks, Gilbert. The refresh order makes sense to me (just haven't had a report with only cloud data sources).

 

The source of the dataflows is SQL hosted in Azure. The dataflows show up as source: PowerBI as a cloud datasource.

([Edit] Turned out to be an old dataset that had other issues).
