Dataset Refresh (Sharepoint Excel files)

Dear community,

 

unfortunatetly I am not able to refresh my dataset from Power BI Service which loads data from a Sharepoint folder.

I have created and published the report and the dataset. 
It says that I have to sign in for the files, but I don´t see any files in settings. 


Do I need to configure a Datagatway?

Hi @lukmtb08 | @otravers  could it be possible that a Data Gateway is required?   This is the English Version of your screen.  There appears to be an extra item between "Dataset description" and "Parameters" and something is grey out.  If a Data Gateway is required it because you part of VNet or SharePoint is On-premise.

I am using SharePoint Online. 

 

I think the problem is that the files are not displayed in the settings. Therefore I can not sign in..

The files are not going to be listed in the dataset settings, it's the overall connection to SharePoint Online that should appear, like this:

If you're using SharePoint Online you don't need a data gateway, other (i.e. SharePoint Server) you need the gateway.
