CDS Relationships not showing in Power BI

Hi,

I created a few custom data entities in my CDS from a SQL Database. It is the Northwind sample database. In CDS I created a few custom relationships between entities, like between 'Order Details' and 'Product'. It is a one-to-many relationship (see attachment).

When creating a Power BI file of the CDS, this relationship does not come through into my Power BI file... Some other relationships do, but several of the custom ones don't. Am I doing something wrong?

 

Thanks for your advice.

Regards,

Hilko

Hi @Hilko,

If you open the solution in classic interface, by clicking the "Switch to Classic" button. Open the respective relationship and check the "Searchable" property is set to "yes".

Hi @Hilko 

I have no experience with BI but did you use the Northwind Traders database that can be downloaded and instantiated in CDS?  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/northwind-install .  That one already has the relationships defined correctly.

Re: CDS Relationships not showing in Power BI

Hi @EricRegnier ,

 

Thanks for your post. Is the "Classic View" still available in Power Apps? I have the same problem as @Hilko and when I connect the CDS in PowerBI the relationships don't come through, but I don't know how to get to the form in your example.

 

Thanks,

Greg
