Running into Unexpected Error in Dataflow


I am trying to load data into an entity from Azure SQL Database using Dataflows in Power Apps

I am able to connect to the database, choose the table to export, transform data, define primary keys, define refresh settings. But when I click 'Create' it runs into an unexpected error.

I have System Administrator role assigned.

I have tried to create the dataflow in a Solution and directly too. Both ways run into the same error.

Error screen shot attached.


Error message:

section Section1;
shared AlertList = let
Source = Sql.Database("", "sqldb-iopconfig-dev-001"),
Navigation = Source{[Schema = "dbo", Item = "AlertList"]}[Data]

What are the permissions and security roles assigned on the (target) CDS environment? Are you system administrator on CDS environment as well?


I assume that you are able to connect to Azure SQL database using same credentials outside of dataflows (like SQL Server Management Studio). 


You can try running a F12 network trace, and check if there are more information logged before you get that error message.


If it's not giving enough information, then I would suggest opening a Support ticket with Microsoft Support.



Hello Mr. Rohit Sharma


Thank you for your response. 


I have System Administrator role assigned to my CDS Environment. Screen print attached.


Yes, I am able to connect to Azure SQL database using same credentials using dataflows and outside of dataflows also.


I encounter the error when I am configuring up the refresh setting for the dataflow.

I have performed the network trace and the logs are attached


Let me know if you need any further information. Any help will be appreciated.







This is what I can see in your traces:


o.a.c672fbd0a5df1608ca3a.bundle.js:2 Uncaught (in promise) ApiResponseError: Unhandled HTTP Request Exception. Status Code: 400. Reason: undefined. Response Text: "Failed to get the dataflow entity details".
at new t (
at e.value (
at XMLHttpRequest.<anonymous> (


If you have system administrator role on the CDS entity and able to connect to the SQL database as well fine, then it cannot be related to the permissions, but something else.


Since, its not clear from the traces, I would suggest opening a ticket with Microsoft Support to dig deeper and find out the reason for this failure.
