DAX function "RELATED" does not work between DirectQuery and Import tables.

When using the DAX function "RELATED" to add a new column from an Imported table to a DirectQuery table, I receive an error. This error does not occur if both tables are using DirectQuery.

Column: SampleColumn = RELATED(ImportTable[Column])

Error: "The column 'ImportTable[Column]' either doesn't exist or doesn't have a relationship to any table available in the current context."

Relationship: DirectQueryTable[SampleKey] (many) has a relationship with ImportTable[SampleKey] (one)

Cardinality = Many to One (*:1)

Cross filter direction = Both

Make this relationship active = Checked

 

Note: When creating the column using "RELATED" in the DirectQueryTable table, ImportTable shows up as a suggestion.

it's kind of ridiculous this still doesn't work... not allowing refresh of directquery datsource to another PBI Dataset. it's insane. why even have that option if you can't refresh?

not an "efficient" way to do things, but you COULD created a calculated table FROM the directquery source, and link that one instead... but yea, not elegant.

I added a support table (duplicated value) in Datavers, then between two DATAVERSE tables RELATED function works. However, this does not solve the problem, but I can measure the units value in my table.

 

The disadvantage of this solution is I have to upload prices added to the second table.

Four years later and this is still an issue. So is it really a bug or by design?
