Custom connecto hierarchy fail with on premise data gateway

Hi,

We have developed our own connector to our API. To help the use navigate through our API hierarchy, we have created nested table views (see screenshot).
The connector and report works fine in powerBI desktop but when we publish it and use our connector with the on premise data gateway we get an error.

 

The request made in the advanced editor :

let
Source = Bimsync.Contents(),
#"BOS Sandbox" = Source{[Name="BOS Sandbox"]}[Data],
Model1 = #"BOS Sandbox"{[Name="Model"]}[Data]
in
Model1

The error in the refresh console :

{"error":{"code":"DM_GWPipeline_Gateway_MashupDataAccessError","pbi.error":{"code":"DM_GWPipeline_Gateway_MashupDataAccessError","parameters":{},"details":[{"code":"DM_ErrorDetailNameCode_UnderlyingErrorCode","detail":{"type":1,"value":"-2147467259"}},{"code":"DM_ErrorDetailNameCode_UnderlyingErrorMessage","detail":{"type":1,"value":"The key didn't match any rows in the table."}},{"code":"DM_ErrorDetailNameCode_UnderlyingHResult","detail":{"type":1,"value":"-2147467259"}},{"code":"Microsoft.Data.Mashup.ValueError.Key","detail":{"type":1,"value":"[Name = \"Model\"]"}},{"code":"Microsoft.Data.Mashup.ValueError.Reason","detail":{"type":1,"value":"Expression.Error"}},{"code":"Microsoft.Data.Mashup.ValueError.Table","detail":{"type":1,"value":"#table({\"Name\", \"Data\", \"ItemKind\", \"ItemName\", \"IsLeaf\"}, {})"

 

The connector code :

Actually it's already configured like that and the Gateway works. If I change the connector code and remove the hierarchy or if I change my request in the report to this :

let
Source = Bimsync.Contents(),
in
Source

The refresh works and I don't get any error.

Me answer wasn't a solution. It just shows that if you totally remove the data retreival, it works. But I need to dig into the data.

Actually it's already configured like that and the Gateway works. If I change the connector code and remove the hierarchy or if I change my request in the report to this :

NO it's not solved. I'm saying that if I remove the hierarchy (and can't access to my data) this doesn't work. So this is not the solution.

The solution would then be : don't use your connector. Please reopen.
