Speckle Connector not appear in Power BI get data tab

As the title, my PBI “get data” tab didn’t have Speckle Connector.
The version, that I am using:

  • Speckle.mez: 2.18.0
  • PBI: + Version: 2.127.1327.0 (Date Published: 4/1/2024)
    Has anyone had the same problem?

Hey @nikochin ,

Did you configure your Power BI settings so it runs custom data sources?

Can you also try updating Power BI? We had reports of users problems disappear after updating Power BI.

me sucede lo mismo, ya actualice PBI, sin embargo aún no me aparece la fuente de datos Speckle.

Thank you, professor. I found the main cause, which I will explain detail below:

My old Speckle.mez file was saved in Onedirve’s documents path when my Onedrive account was activated on the computer:

C:\Users\{user_name}{Onedrive_Name}\Documents\Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors\

But when I logout from my account, the path file of Speckle.mez will be affected. As the picture below you can see 2 Documents folders, 1 for Onedrive and 1 for Local:

I saved the speckle.mez file in the wrong documents folder and it didn’t work.


  • After restoring, save the Speckle.mez file to this path:

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors\



Glad you found the root cause and solved it. Thanks for sharing the solution @nikochin !
