Where does BigQuery Data gets stored once the dataflow is created?

Hi all, 

 

I managed to create a dataflow using a table that is stored in BigQuery. I am wondering where this table gets stored once the dataflow is created.

 

Any help or guidance will be appreciated. 

 

Thanks!

Once a dataflow is created in PowerBI, the data is stored in a PowerBI-specific data store. The data is not stored in BigQuery. The dataflow serves as a connection to the data in BigQuery and enables you to perform transformations and manipulations in PowerBI before creating a report. The report will then retrieve data from the dataflow rather than directly from BigQuery.
