Accessing OneLake Files from Power BI Desktop

Marc Lelijveld reads a file:

Fabric content is all over the place by now. In Fabric, as a SaaS platform, most (if not all) services have interconnectivity. In a few clicks you connect your web-developed Power BI dataset to a lakehouse, or warehouse to fetch data from OneLake. But what about Power BI Desktop? You might have uploaded some files to OneLake which you cannot access from Power BI Desktop.

In this blog I’ll explain on how you can connect to OneLake data using Power BI Desktop!

This turns out to be a bit trickier than I would have expected. Hopefully the experience gets better over time.
