Unable to Connect When Opening File



After I downloaded the latest update to Power BI, I now get the following every time I open a Power BI file:




The reports are connected to an Azure Analysis Service model. It is not preventing me from accessing the report because once I click retry or edit, it then prompts me for my credentials and I am able to access the report. Is there a way that I can get Power BI to prompt for my credentials from the start instead of seeing this error?

You may try to edit permissions in Data source settings.

Re: Unable to Connect When Opening File

I tried this, unfortunately, when connecting directly to Azure Analysis Service, there isn't a data source. So, there is no way for me to edit the information for Analysis Service in Data Source settings because it doesn't appear there.
