Why do PBI Premium hosted reports (DQ) show 2 datasets ?

See our PBI Premium workspace below. The two reports are identical, except the "LC" version is Live Connect and the other is Direct Query. Both are ultimately sourced from the "Tabular" dataset at the end, which is just a tabular model built in Visual Studio and deployed to this workspace. Why does the Direct Query version of the report (#2 in the list) produce an extra dataset (#3 in the list)? What is that? The LC version of the report (#1) seems to point directly to the tabular model (#4). Thanks.

Get data from Power BI dataset,this will give you a normal live connection to the Power BI dataset.

Make changes to the live Power BI dataset connection model,you will get the message that this operation will create a local dataset copy with the ability to change.

This action will change the storage mode of your Power BI dataset tables to DirectQuery.

Hi @bvy ,

 

How was the Direct Query version of the report (#2 in the list) created?

Or is one of the dataset a shared dataset? The other is the instance dataset in this workspace?

Thanks for responding. I created the report, then pointed it to a PBI Premium dataset. Next I "changed to a local mode" which converted it from Live Connect to DirectQuery. When I publish the report to the workspace, it creates both the report, and the second dataset shown (named the same as the report).
