Power Bi Embedded fails when changing from Live Dataset to Direct Query

We have an embedded Power BI Report which have worked just fine when the data source was Live Dataset. We changed the data source to Direct Query to do some small adjustments, but then all visuals started to fail in embedded mode. The error message on all visuals where "Couldn't retrieve the data for this visual. Please try again later."


The report works perfectly when running it directly in the Power BI Service, but fails when running embedded.


This must be a bug?




Hi, and thanks @ponnusamy!  But after some reading in the doc I found this:

"Using Power BI Embedded with datasets that include a DirectQuery connection to a Power BI datasets or Azure Analysis Services model is not currently supported" 

So unfortunately it seems like this isn't going to work yet...
