SQL Azure Import Data Refresh

Hi all,

 

I am trying to setup automatic refresh connecting to SQL Azure DB. The online service is prompting me to install a personal gateway. If I switch to DirectQuery, I am prompted for credentials. I need to use Import to support my data transformations instead of DirectQuery.

 

Why can't I setup data refresh using Import?

I finally figured it out: the connection FQDN included the word "secure".

 

This won't allow server-side refresh: <database name>.database.secure.windows.net.

This will allow servers-side refresh: <database name>.database.windows.net

 

Both FQDNs seem to work otherwise. The 'secure' setting was used to enable auditing, but I don't think it is required anymore.

 

Problem solved. Thanks everyone.

Update: I have confirmed Power BI requires a personal gateway in our main azure subscription with a brand new SQL database and test database. In a separate test subscription with exactly the same Azure SQL setup, a personal gateway is not required.

 

There is something specific about our subscription that is causing this problem. I'm at the end of my ideas to troubleshoot, and so we are opening a Microsoft ticket.
