Enable Tracing

Tracing is useful for troubleshooting connectivity issues with the 1010data Power BI Connector, such as finding out why a 1010data query was not supported in DirectQuery mode.

If you wish to enable tracing, you need to select this option each time you start Power BI.
Note: You may want to move the contents of the Traces directory (C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop\Traces) before enabling tracing in Power BI Desktop.

To enable tracing:

  1. From the menu, select File > Options and settings > Options.
    The Options dialog appears.
  2. In the Options dialog, select Diagnostics.
  3. Under Diagnostic Options, select Enable tracing.
    Traces usually appear in C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Power BI Desktop\Traces, with a file name beginning with PBIDesktop.
