Steaming Dataset forcing US datetime format

Hi Everyone,


Streaming datasets don't allow transformations on the data. It's so frustrating that PowerBI just goes ahead and transforms my data anyway to something I don't want! 


I'm pushing JSON with a UK datetime format (dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss) to a streaming dataset. PowerBI then converts this to a US format (mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss) for some reason. Can I get Power BI to retain the original UK datetime format?


I've checked all my local datetime settings and they are all set to UK.

I've tried creating a new streaming dataset and loading 31/12/2019, PBI simply didnt accept the value (Because it's not in a valid US format?)

Hi @Anonymous ,

Based on my test, I found that we can't set the region for the data streaming, in your scenario, because CSV doesn't have a data format, as a result, PowerBI Service recognizes it as the US format.

Best REgards,
