List of DirectQuery data sources?

I need a list of DirectQuery data sources. This page Use DirectQuery in Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Learn says:

> For a summary of the sources that support DirectQuery, see Data sources supported by DirectQuery

That page has no such list. Where did it go?

It doesn't look like there is a consolidated list any more. What you can do is go here: List of all Power Query connectors - Power Query | Microsoft Learn and then find your data source (eg. Power Query Oracle database connector - Power Query | Microsoft Learn) and then check the Capabilities Supported section:

I filed an issue on Github. This type of documentation gap is quite frankly unacceptable.

I am trying to find this list as well - the link provided above still points to the Use DirectQuery in Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Learn page which has no list..

Thanks! I found this too, but it's almost a year old. That can be horribly out of date at the speed Power BI sometimes moves! I was hoping to find the official Power BI list. It seems like it is gone now.
