We are happy to announce that we have just released the June 2023 update for the on-premises data gateway (version 3000.178.9).
This update brings the on-premises data gateway up to date with the June 2023 release of Power BI Desktop.
This version of the gateway 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/run-time as in the June version of Power BI Desktop.
We have added support for Lakehouse connectivity over the gateway. Make sure to update to the latest version to be able to load your on-premises data into a Lakehouse.
Beginning on March 15, 2023, any Power BI dataflow using an on-premises data gateway version older than April 2021 might fail. To ensure your refreshes continue to work correctly, be sure to update your gateway to the latest version. Learn more about our support cycle in our documentation.
The ‘EnableWebView2’ flag is now opt-out, meaning that it’s default will be true. You can set it to false to opt-out. When the flag is true, you will be able to use the webview2 engine for the Web.BrowserContents function which should be faster and more reliable. Learn more about the Web.BrowserContents function here. Learn more about the three Web functions offered here. You may need to download the evergreen webview2 installer to be up to date: WebView2 – Microsoft Edge Developer.
