Cannot create sample data or upload a file


  • Whenever I try to create the sample data it says "Loading 1 of 2 Sample files" followed by the following message:

    Sorry, we could not add all of the samples at this time.

    When I try to upload a file of mine, it says:

    Sorry, something went wrong

  • Hi Bill,

    Thank you for reporting this.

    We have identified an issue that could cause adding samples to return an error for some customers. We are working on resolving the issue as soon as possible.

    I'll reply to let you know when the issue is resolved.

  • If I add my file using the normal documents, it uploads fine.  Then when I see it in Power BI I have to "enable" it to work.   This is my current workaround for my documents.

  • Hi Bill,

    We have resolved this issue.

    From the Power BI Sites homepage, you can click the Settings gear in the top-right corner and choose Add sample data... to add samples to your site.
