I have connected to a PostgreSQL database using an ODBC connection. However I now want to connect a single table direct query. Is it possible to do this in any way?
Many thanks in advance
Hi @Jan_Hob , I am in a same situation, can you please help if you were you able to find a solution for this? I am getting below error while Configuring credentials on power bi services. I am able to connect it in desktop (using Direct Query mode) but can't connect it on services.
Same question here! Documentation says supports Direct Query/Live, but can't find any way to do it. Everyone says to do it in the service, you have to use ODBC which doesn't support direct query. Any assistance greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Some useful links for you, >>Solved: Connecting to postgresql with direct query mode - Microsoft Power BI Community
Hope it helps!
None of these links work. They highlight issues and show the ODBC solution, which doesn't support direct query) as well as one hosted on AWS. On the microsoft documentation it says postgresql itself (standard connector) can be done in direct query mode. Is this not possible in the service?
Thank you. I have already looked at those sources and cannot find any reference to direct query. I am hesitant to switch to npgsql unless it will guarantee that I can then do direct query.
You may have to use npgsql then use powerbi connector to achieve dq mode.
Did I answer your question? Please mark my reply as solution. Thank you very much.
If not, please feel free to ask me.
