No existing SQL connections when setting up dataflows

When setting up a new dataflow I cannot select any of the connections that were already set up in my environment.

When I click the refresh icon next to the connections field I see a call being made to get the existing connections.

https://europe.prod.powerquery.microsoft.com/api/connections?$forceRefresh=true

This call is successful, I get a list of connections:

{
  "list": [
    {
      "authKind": 4,
      "encryptConnection": 2,
      "id": "abc",
      "key": null,
      "kind": "SQL",
      "displayName": "dbname dbserver\\instance",
      "emailAddress": null,
      "ewsSupportedSchema": null,
      "ewsUrl": null,
      "identitySource": null,
      "password": null,
      "path": "dbserver\\instance;dbname",
      "normalizedPath": "dbserver\\instance;dbname",
      "username": null,
      "gatewayObjectId": "gateway-id",
      "gatewayPublicKey": null,
      "gatewayEncryptedCredential": null,
      "privacyGroup": "None",
      "connectionProviderProperties": { "PQO_SourceConnectionType": "ParameterSet" }
    },
    {
      "authKind": 4,
      "encryptConnection": 2,
      "id": "shared-filesystem-some-id",
      "key": null,
      "kind": "Folder",
      "displayName": "DropFileToSharedFolder",
      "emailAddress": null,
      "ewsSupportedSchema": null,
      "ewsUrl": null,
      "identitySource": null,
      "password": null,
      "path": "\\\\sharedfolder\\somefolder",
      "normalizedPath": "\\\\sharedfolder\\somefolder",
      "username": null,
      "gatewayObjectId": "gateway-id",
      "gatewayPublicKey": null,
      "gatewayEncryptedCredential": null,
      "privacyGroup": "None",
      "connectionProviderProperties": null
    },
    {
      "authKind": 4,
      "encryptConnection": 2,
      "id": "xyz",
      "key": null,
      "kind": "SQL",
      "displayName": "dbserver\\instance;dbname",
      "emailAddress": null,
      "ewsSupportedSchema": null,
      "ewsUrl": null,
      "identitySource": null,
      "password": null,
      "path": "dbserver\\instance;dbname",
      "normalizedPath": "dbserver\\instance;dbname",
      "username": null,
      "gatewayObjectId": "gateway-id",
      "gatewayPublicKey": null,
      "gatewayEncryptedCredential": null,
      "privacyGroup": "None",
      "connectionProviderProperties": { "PQO_SourceConnectionType": "ParameterSet" }
    }
  ],
  "isComplete": true
}

Now I would expect to at least have the connections of type ("kind") SQL to appear, yet nothing is shown in the drop down list.

 

Could someone please explain why the existing SQL connections aren't displayed?

Hi @nfdev,

Did you resolved this finally? I don't believe that the connections are shared if they were connected with an individual account. Furthermore, even though the connection itself might be the same type of datasource, they may have different versions and so might not be compatible with the current version expected by the dataflow. Also, are you Power Platform Admin (from O365) on the tenant?

Cheers
