Missing 'Get Data' and Database Connections

I wonder if anyone else experiences this.   Please forgive that my pictures are out of order (the top-most would be the last one that I'd expect to see through navigating).   I don't have the Get data in the lower left-hand corner, and I can't find what appears in the 2nd picture  (all the Get buttons), and my goal is to make a Database Connection to Azure/SQL.   I have the Premium per user license, although it's on a trial basis (I don't know if it's relevant that it's a 60-day trial).


Does anyone know why the Get data with the arrow doesn't exist?  I suspect that the reason it doesn't exist would explain why I don't see the other things as well.

Hi @dstoma 

The "Get data" option has been removed, now you can get data from "Upload" or "New Dataset"





You can refer to the following blog to know the update of Power BI Service.
