Cosmos DB connector does not work on DirectQuery when updating data source

We currently have a table in PBI connected to Spark that we're looking to change to Cosmos DB. While I can successfully connect to Cosmos DB for a new table, when I run the exact same connection on an existing table (i.e. by copy-pasting the Advanced Editor code from the working table to the existing table), I get the error that the import is not supported by DirectQuery mode. Why might this be happening?

Hi @jublair,

 

Please check if you previously connect to Spark in DirectQuery mode. From this document, you can see Cosmos DB is not supported in DirectQuery mode. If Spark data source is using DirectQuery mode, please change it to Import mode, then copy and paste the Power Query for Cosmos DB.
