PI SQL - Linked Server - Views

We are using PowerBI Report Server to do Direct Query to PI using a Linked Server.  The issue is we have to use OpenQuery statement to access the views created for the Event Frames and Asset Snapshot data.


For the Event Frames, PowerBI is obviously adding the WHERE statement after the OpenQuery which cause the OpenQuery to load all the Event Frames before filtering.


I would like to use a 4th part name query style, like:  SELECT * FROM [MyLinkedServer].[Master].[EventFrames].[MyView] WHERE StarTime> '2019-07-17'

instead of SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY([MyLinkedServer],'SELECT * FROM [Master].[EventFrames].[MyView]') WHERE StartTime>'2019-07-17'


From browsing the Linked Server in MS SQL Management Studio, I can see and query the PI SQL tables using the 4th part name but I cannot see or access the views.


Any idea?  Security settings, required configuration, feature not yet available?
