We’re very glad to announce that the September update for the On-premises data gateway is now available for download. This update includes the following enhancements:
- Personal Mode support for national clouds.
- Improved Gateway Configuration Experience for Personal Mode.
- Updated version of the Mashup Engine.
You can download this new version and continue reading below for more details about each enhancement.
Personal Mode Support for national clouds
Starting with this month’s release, customers can use the Personal Mode of the On-premises data gateway when using Power BI in one of the supported national clouds. Please check the following documentation article for more information regarding national clouds support in Power BI: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/clouds/
Improved Gateway Configuration Experience for Personal Mode
We have improved the Configuration experience for the On-premises data gateway when running in Personal mode. This experience matches the existing one for Enterprise mode, including Status, Service Settings, Diagnostics and Network configuration options.
Updated version of the Mashup Engine
Last but not least, this Gateway update includes the same version of the Mashup Engine as the Power BI Desktop update released last week. This will ensure that the reports that you publish to the Power BI Service and refresh via the Gateway will go through the same query execution logic/runtime as in the latest Power BI Desktop version. Note that there are some Beta connectors (such as Spark) still not supported outside of Power BI Desktop. Please refer to specific connector documentation for more details or contact us if you have any questions.
That’s all for this month’s Gateway update. We hope that you find these enhancements useful and continue sending us feedback for what new capabilities you’d like to see in the future.
