We are happy to announce that the August update for the On-premises data gateway was recently released.
This month’s gateway update (version: 14.16.6792.1) continues to add improvements to the custom data connectors support we announced in the July release. With the August release, the enterprise gateway now supports custom data connectors that are using the Direct Query technology and\or using ODBC drivers.
This month’s Gateway update also includes an updated version of the Mashup Engine, which matches the one released as part of the Power BI Desktop August update. 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 still not supported by the Gateway. 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 updates useful and continue sending us feedback for what new capabilities you’d like to see in the future.
