Connection error when connecting to SSAS MD

Hi, 

 

I am having 3 multi-dimensional cubes in my SSAS database. I want connect to one of them using PowerBI but it's giving the error as:

"An error occurred while loading the model for the item or data source 'QueryUserError'. Verify that the connection information is correct and that you have permissions to access the data source."

 

I can connect to both other cubes without any issue but this one cube is giving error.

 

Also I can connect to this cube with the PBI installed on the same server where cubes resides. 

 

I have the PBI latest (Feb update) installed.

 

Please refer to the image below to understand the failure more clearly. Error comes upon the connection marked in red:

 

Only Red link fails

Thanks

Re: Connection error when connecting to SSAS MD

Hi @KalpaniHt,

 

According to your description, did you mean use http access to different AS datasource based on IIS web portal?

If this is a case, current power bi not support dynamic table structure. I think cube A and cube B has same data structure, but they not same as cube C. So you can't connection to cube 3.

 

Reference link:

Configure HTTP Access to Analysis Services on IIS 8.0

 

In addition, if your service contains different instance and you are try to use different connection string to link, I think the issue is more related to cube c. You need to check its settings and config.
