Use the CDS connector in Power BI for production or not?

Hi, I really like the usage of the CDS for Apps connector in Power BI.

But as the name still says "beta", I hesitate to actually use it when creating solutions and reports for my customers.

Does anyone know why it says "beta" for months now and do you use it in production sutuations for your customers?

Re: Use the CDS connector in Power BI for production or not?

Hi @Maurits,

The Common Data Service for Apps connector is a new feature released within Power BI in the May update of Power BI desktop, but there still have some limitations with this new connector.

Please check the following blog for more details:

In order to get a stable and better performance when using this new connector, please consider use it within your Production situations when the official version is released.
