Can we have the powerbi connector step into "hive_metastore" automatically?

Erik

We are distributing pbids files providing the connection info to databricks. It contains options passed to the "Databricks.Catalogs " function implementing the connection to databricks. It is my understanding that databricks has made this together with Microsoft, thats why I am asking question here. If one passes the "Database" option then the connector only lists the tables in the provided database. But is there some way to specify that I want it to go into the "hive_metastore" catalog? At the moment it shows "hive_metastore" and "samples", and we would like our users to not have to relate to the cryptic "hive_metastore".

Hi, I guess only when you set the database also. When I am setting only the catalog, it shows all anyway. It is JSON so that you can experiment, as I can not find any doc.
