Unable to Edit Credentials after publishing using Postgres data with a Port number.

I'm using PostgreSQL data (directly from Improvado) that gives me a connection to Power BI using a host, port, database, username, and password. I used all of the information to get the data into the Power BI Desktop with no issues and published it to the server.


Now that the report is in the server, I can't set up a scheduled refresh because of the credentials. Here is the error I'm getting:


I know that the username and password are correct, but I can't figure out why it won't accept the credentials. I'm guessing it's because the port number isn't included anywhere? How do I add in the port number to the credential validation?

No luck there. I tried Server:port as well as server/port in the server name field but neither worked. I have also tried a few other iterations with no success.

some times the source request a domain to be specify to get in line with the credential for that server
