Power BI Dataset and VNET-Gateway

Hi .. some problem.

In PowerBi service i have create da VNET-Datagateway and it works well with some reports.


I create a new Report/Dataset in PowerBi Desktop with a local SQL-Server Database as source.

Works fine an I publish this to PowerBi service.


Now i will change the settings for Dataset so it can access the database behind the VNET-Datagateway.

But when I open Dataset->Settings->Gateway and Cloud Connections,

I see the switch for 'Use an On-premises or VNet data gateway' is set to off and greyed out.

Below is the Message:

You don't have any data gateways.

We didn't find any suitable data gateways to connect to the data sources that this dataset uses. Either install an on-premises data gateway and add the data sources that this dataset uses to it, or install a data gateway in personal mode to connect this dataset to its data sources.


Am I missing certain rights to use the VNET data gateway for new reports or what is the reason?
