Dataflow based reports stopped working last night

All of our reports stopped updateing last night with this error:

[ValidateMarkupTags][ccon]Expression.Error: Blob URLS are not supported within the ADLS Gen 2 connector.. [ccon]


We have defined a CDM based DataFlow to point out the model.json file (using the DFS URL)

Then the report (or model ) is using the PowerBI dataflow (legacy) connection to fetch the data.


It is working in PoerBI desktop, but not online.

We have tried to chnage to Powerplatform dataflow in the report and still same behavoir


Feels like MS has changed something. The error message is refering to a CSV file on the ADLS storage usung BLOB url, so it fells to me it is related to how the connector is reading the data from the dataflow


Anyone else experinced this?? Any ideas??

Hi all: MS aims for the 20th of May (at least that is what they told us)

We just got the update that the issue should be solved yesterday evening. I didn;t verify it yet.

Hi all


Sorry for not replaying earlier. To much work to do 🙂


I havn't verified if it is working or not yet. I have a workaround in place at the momement that fixes the url in the json files, so that has done it so we can continue to use our reports.

But since there now are reports that it is working again, I will check if I can remove my workaround.




I can confirm our data refresh completed successfully 15-May-2024 17:00 AEST. Finally!

@FredrikW  We're experiencing the same issue today. Did this ever get resolved for you? @v-heq-msft  any updates from the product team?

It works for me now.   So at least for my environments in WE-datacenters the issue seams to habe been fixed.

Hi everyone,


Does anyone know when is the patch going to be released?

Microsoft has informed us last week that they tried to fix it before the end of April without success. They now aim for the 20th of May. Our Power Automate Flow solves the issue for us, so we can live with it.

Great. We had the same reply yesterday:

After, in-depth troubleshooting on the findings of the issue and extensive internal discussions, we have escalated the issue to our product team.


Our product team, further Investigated and observed that there is a regression in the backend due to the recent deployment, which is causing the trouble and appreciated for bringing the issue to our notice.

Hi all,


We have reported this issue and submitted it to the product team.

Hi Albert,


Just wondering if Microsoft will reimburse the cost (increasing daily) associated to the temporary fix that I have implemented in Azure Data Factory?

Thank you for the update.

Unfortunately I don't have Power Automate (Premium) so in the end I used Azure Data Factory - Data Flow to update the files.

Nothing new from MS. Had a screen sharing session last friday, but they only collected some logs. Don't feel that the logs would help very much..
Great suggestion about setting up Power automate to "fix" the files as a workaround. I am testing this right now as a temp fix
