Access to the resource is forbidden

Hi,

 

I have the "Access to the resource is forbidden" in powerbi desktop when trying to refresh the database, I am signed into the correct account (I have 4 individual businesses each with unique user/pass) 

 

This is a continual problem for me, i have had to refresh the computer to just connect to the database before to build dashboards. 

 

Anyhelp would be appreciated, gotta love a Monday morning.

We see that too for SharePoint connectors sometimes. Go to Data Source settings Global and Edit or Clear the credentials for that source.

@mahoneypat hmm not sure, I never came across such an issue. Waiting to hear back from @powerbinoob31  to learn what is the data source.

Yeah i ended up doing this, but just relogged in within the database credentials with the same ones i was currently logged in as.. It seems to be an issue on and off because i have several microsoft credentials for work.
