Connecting Azure Analysis Service with Azure Blob Storage

Jasmine AHLAWAT 1 Reputation point

I have free AAS account and Blob Storage. Have uploaded some data (data integrity ensured) in Blob Storage and now wants to connect it with AAS to create tabular models for Power BI reporting.

However, in AAS, I don't see an option to connect to any data source except Sample Data which is Adventure Works.

Found this link on Microsoft but not sure how to make it working..

Any simpler step help would be great.

    You may try creating Analysis service project in Visual studio first and try to load data from blob storage and finally deploy solution to Azure analysis service

    Designing model directly in browser portal is not supported anymore. If you open the link you shared, it says top that its old and not supported document,was%20introduced%20in%20July%202017.&text=Instead%20of%20the%20web%20designer,your%20Azure%20Analysis%20Services%20models.

    There is currently no way to connect SSAS with Blob Storage, the easiest way would be to use Power BI Import mode to load data from your blob storage
