Connecting to CDS from SQL Server Management Studio

I saw the presentation at the summit, that you can connect to the CDS instance from SSMS. What are the steps to accomplish that?

Hi @SarathMohan,

 

the link provided shows the following:

Could you please check if that option is enabled by trying the following?

You can use the Analyze in Power BI option (Data > Entities > Analyze in Power BI) in Power Apps (https://make.powerapps.com) to use the SQL connection feature to analyze data in Power BI Desktop. More information: View entity data in Power BI Desktop.

Hi @Nickytvv ,

 

I don't see any options when navigated to the mentioned Data--> Entities and checked in Commnad bar. Tried this in other instances of US region as well. No luck so far. For your information these are not trial instances.

 

Let me know if you are able to show me a screen grab of how this is appearing. for which region etc.

 

Regards,

Sarath Mohan

No There is no option available in the command bar tried with multiple instances. No luck

Are you able to see this option. I have navigated to Data--> Entities and in the command bar didn't find any option.
