It is not resolved from my perspective.
Why? We still cannot mix source: Sharepoint with SQL Server.
As i understood, propose of gateway is to have all sources access managed in one place.
Now it is not possible.
OK So now that we have PowerApps and they connect to both On Prem and Online sources why are we lacking the same connectivity for SharePoint to SQL? I have a SQL DB I need to query from Online SharePoint using a list. I don't understand the issue. I know Microsoft is trying to do away with any and all custom development here is the thought we can use the Gateway to connect to the on prem source to get the required data. This should be easy as a couple of clicks as it used to be. Taking away capabilities is dumb and adding truly untested functionality is even worse. PowerApps? Seriously? Not all functionality is applied on the status-phone or iPad anything. You would think Microsoft would be thinking that making functionality using Microsoft products to use Microsoft devices would be a better approach then opening things up to iPhones because every teen in the word has one so they can say they do. Microsoft, Marketing is key. Sayin that you products can do something should always be accompanied by detailed instruction of how to. Even auto mechanics have manuals to show them how to and what the specifications of that product are. I need to connect to a SQL Database that has more than 137000 records. SharePoint Online allows 2000. That was nice in 2010 and even then it was cumbersome. Now we are here 9 years later and still don't have a solution, but we have PowerApps that is worthless to me. I put in a Support ticket that we pay a boatload for the tenant and have been told I am going to have to pay for 70 hrs of work at $225/hr. Seriously? You must be joking. I am thinking we consider other solutions.
Got an update from Microsoft:
The refreshes required Personal gateways because there wasn’t an option to set privacy levels for cloud data sources. Recently this was also enabled.
More information at the following link: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/privacy-levels-for-cloud-data-sources/
This setting has fixed our issue. We can now refresh dataset that merges data from on-prem SQL server and SharePoint Online.
Any news on this? Trying to combine SalesForce data with on premise data, but can't create a SalesForce data source on the gateway
We're having the same issue reported where I'm trying to combine SharePoint data with other data and I can't add SharePoint to my gateway as OAuth isn't an option via the gateway. Please help resolve this as it seems a pretty normal use case.
I am having the same problem. I have lots of reports using data from our SQL server AND Excel files on Sharepoint and OneDrive, and they work just fine, refreshing over an Enterprise Gateway. However, this is the first report where I try to merge queries, looking up values in a SQL table onto the Excel tables, and now it will not refresh no matter what I try. Although I did have one random refresh on demand work in 6 minutes. It refreshes on my Desktop in 5 minutes. I have a ticket in with Microsoft.
Microsoft support have told me that this idea/feature does not yet work on Enterprise Gateway. It only works on the Personal Gateway for now. I've asked them to update this ideas to page to reflect the fact that is is not yet "Complete".
Support: "After looking in to the verbatim we found that you are trying to combine an On premise datsource with cloud datsource (WEB). This is not possible by using the On premise data gateway in enterprise mode. In order to combine the data you should be using the On premise data gateway (personal Mode)."
We can't use personal mode in our case - please allow this feature for enterprise mode as well!
It is very important that Power BI technical team responds to this problem that is impacting our business processes.
I have this problem also with SQL database on premisses and Sharepoint online.
Same as Carl.."We also tried refreshing datasets which merge on-prem source (SQL server) and online source (Excel on SharePoint online), and this is still not working, despite enabling the Gateway setting “Allow user’s cloud data sources to refresh through this gateway cluster" Any news about this_??
