PowerBI dataset refresh error (Odata connection to Dynamics 365) - invalid feed metadata

  • 1.  PowerBI dataset refresh error (Odata connection to Dynamics 365) - invalid feed metadata

    After the wave 2 upgrade was pushed into our environment last night, we have datasets that pull data from Dynamics via Odata query connections failing. This is the failure:
    • Processing error: The feed's metadata document appears to be invalid. Error: The type Microsoft.Dynamics.CRM.msfp_surveyresponse has conflicting definitions for the property msfp_msfp_surveyresponse_msfp_surveyresponse_parent_survey_response_new

    This we are not even referencing this entity or what it might be.  We have opened a ticket, but not making any progress.   

    Creating a new PowerBI report using Odata to dynamics fails as well, any table. Production or Sandbox environment.

    We see the same error using get data in excel, and attempting to connect to dynamics online.  This is after entering the web api to our environment.

    Has anyone seen this and found a work around?

    The instructions provided by Microsoft, which seem a bit odd to me, do actually fix this.
    Update the Dynamics Voice of the Customer solution to be version 2.0.0.27.  This is NOT the same version as the solution.
    When I updated, the solution number did NOT update, but I was on 2.0.0.26.

    Dynamics 365 Customer Voice (microsoft.com)

     From the admin center (admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com), select your environment->resources->apps. If the Voice of the Customer app shows it has an update available update it.
    We don't use anything in this solution, but it did fix the issue.
