Power BI cannot find 'Project for the Web' custom columns

I'm attempting to load 'Project for the Web' fields into PowerBI to be used in a report.  This video shows that it is possible...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GstSF_3O2ZE.  However upon following the steps I do not see the custom fields in any of the project tables.  Is what I'm attempting to do even possible?

Hi, @rposch

Do you sure you have created the custom field in data source? Did you refresh the report?

AKAIK, you can't use OData connector to access PWA Custom fields in PowerBI.

You can try to use web connector then change to xml.  Advanced transformation steps——xml tables 

Please refer to the solution provided by @echristoph  in this thread.

Hi v-janeyg-msft,

Thank you for your thoughtful response, I believe the problem may be something else.  The custom fields have been created through the 'home page' as opposed to being created through Dynamics.  I'm told they are visible in Power BI (using CDS) if created through Dynamics.  Not sure if we are even licensed for Dynamics.  I believe this is why I cannot locate the fields via PowerBI.  Thanks again for taking the time and providing a thoughtful response.  Much appreciated!
