Unable to authentication using Microsoft credentials or windows authentication

Our Power BI files are connected to Azure analysis services, it's a live connection. It stopped working this morning due to credential issues, not sure what's going on with Power BI but we cannot authenticate using Microsoft account nor windows authentication. Please see screenshots:





Anyone experiencing the same issue?


Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
