Questions

1. Is this due to Power BI Gateway not installed and configured?

2. Where should I install Power BI? I guess this will be on-prem

3. Will the authentication info stored in Power BI Gateway?

4. Apart from connecting to web API, I also need to connect to SQL on-prem. Will PB Gateway handle the connection as well?

 

Thanks in advance!
