Authentication Issue - SQL Services Analysis Services Database

When I tried to connect Power BI to our SQL Server Analysis Services Database, I kept on getting the error message "We couldn't get the data for this visual due to an authentication error, Please try again later". I tried clearing permissions in Data Source Settings and re-establishing the data connection, and it did not work. This issue started happening right after I changed my OKTA password. Please let me know how I can resolve this issue.


This is happening to me too. Downgrading to July Power BI Desktop worked.
