Canvas App integration with Power BI - Unable to import data

Hello - I followed a youtube video on integrating PowerApps on Power BI dashboard. I am running into an issue and after hours of searching I am posting to this forum.


I initiated a PowerApps session in PowerBI and then in the ensuing Canvas Apps portal, I connected to a Sharepoint data source. I entered the following function for the Form: 

LookUp('DAR - Data Dictionary Submission Form','Name of the Table (u)'=First(PowerBIIntegration.Data).Table)



I published the app and refreshed the PowerBI. I see the form in PowerBI but the data fields don't show up. Can anyone please advice on what I could have overlooked?

fair point but I can confirm i created it on studio. I followed the youtube video so I know it should work.

Thank you for your response, and yes, I have tried recreating it but unfortunately it has not worked. About your comment about it still loading: it has been loading for several hours and I am only working with a few row items so I feel there is probably something more to it. 

Is this the SharePoint integration canvas app, or did you create it from the studio? I am wondering if that has something to do with it - there are a few Power Apps features that don't work when you are creating the form customization directly from SharePoint vs creating a blank app and connecting to SharePoint as a source...

@christinepayton : Have you faced something similar before?

No, I don't use the Power App integration very often though - it looks like it thinks it's still loading, have you tried re-adding the Power Apps visual to the PBI report page? That might shake it loose...
