Enhanced dataset metadata feature breaks data refresh

After the June 2020 Desktop was installed on my desktop last week, none of the reports I published would refresh (Invalid connection credentials, Underlying error code: -2147467259, Credentials are required to connect to the File source).  All of my existing reports that rely on the same data/gateway were still refreshing just fine. though.

 

After briefly breaking my on-premises gateway while trying to troubleshoot this and wasting a lot of time running down blind alleys, I finally stumbled on the the culprit - the enhanced dataset metadata preview feature.  It seems it was turned on by default.  As soon as I turned it off, restarted and republished, everything was fine again.

 

I hope this saves someone some time and frustration.

Re: Enhanced dataset metadata feature breaks data refresh

@rustwood thanks for sharing. I know this enhanced metadata can lead to problems and rightly it is in preview. One shouldn't turn it on until they need to test something with this new feature.
