Delete DataFlow sources created by AI features

Hi all,

I've been working with the DataFlows and the new AI features in the Power BI service.

After performing some tests, I decided to remove the AI part from my DataFlow. However, new datasources were created and are causing an error in the refresh of the dataflow.


The dataflow is very simple: it contains two entities reading from two CSV files. The AIInsights and AIInsightsInProc must be removed from the flow, since they are not going to be used anymore.

Is there a way to remove them from the DataFlow without having to delete the DataFlow and create it again?

Now it has been a test and the flow is very simple, but I'm affraid it could happen when the flow is more complex.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm having the same issue, is there any idea we can vote to add data source management to DataFlows?

Same issue here. Would love to see a fix for this; it happens for any other data source that's added an then later removed.

same issue for me.

I tried to combine one Onprem data source with one Sharepoint data source.

=> Refresh failed for all the query with SP data source and vice versa.


I remove the Onprem data source and all related stuff, make sure in the dataflow there is only SP data source, Save and close dataflow works, but somehome in the Data Flow Refresh the Onprem data source is still there.


=> Bug! I have to recreate a new flow..
