How to remove "hidden" dataflows in the Service?

Recently found out that I have 2 "hidden" dataflows from our workspace. Is there some way I can get rid of these in the service? The 2 dataflows appear like so in the dataflow selection dialog box in Desktop but are not listed in the dataset page in the Service.

Thanks Olivier, finally got it to working using this command:

 

 

Invoke-PowerBIRestMethod -Url "https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/{workspaceid}/dataflows/{dataflowid}" -Method Delete

 

This requires that the current user is logged in using Login-PowerBIServiceAccount in PowerShell

I don't use PowerShell often so I'm not sure. Maybe it's case sensitive, in which case writing "Delete" instead of "DELETE" may work?

I would first get the dataflows definitions via the REST API, and if upon review you know for sure that you want to delete them, again I'd do so using the API:

Thanks Olivier. I tried the function but I'm running across several errors:

Any idea where I went wrong?
