Authentication method in Obvience Weather

Hi

I am trying to connect my PowerBi through a service called Obvience which is offered as a connection.

My end goal is to create a live-streaming weather reporting dashboard.

I cannot get past the first stage of authentication, embarrassing Smiley Sad

Anonymous, Windows, Basic or Key.

I have tried all of them and they all return with and error:

*Failed to update data source credentials: The credentials provided for the OData source are invalid. (Source at http://weatherservice-obvience.azurewebsites.net/NorthAmericaWeatherServices30Days.)*

Please can somebody assist me.

Regards
Lorcan

@Lorcan

The link in the error requires a username/password authentication, can you access that link in a web brower? Is your problem that the username/password won't work in Power BI desktop while it works in a brower?

I would also like to know what should be used here.  Their website offers no info whatsoever.
