Hi @leelachandrappa ,

 

Azure Data Explorer provides three options for connecting to data in Power BI: use the built-in connector, import a query from Azure Data Explorer, or use a SQL query.

 

According to your error message, you could try to clear the permission in Datasource setting at first:

I tried one of the methods, then follow my steps below to reconnect the Azure Data Explorer data source:

For the other two connection methods, please refer to related documents:

Visualize data from Azure Data Explorer with a Power BI SQL query | Microsoft Docs

Visualize data from Azure Data Explorer with a Power BI imported query | Microsoft Docs


If the problem is still not resolved, please provide detailed error information and related operations screenshoots. Looking forward to your reply.

Which account should we choose when Power BI asks us to signin? Is the primary subcription accounts? or the account that is added as the database admin within the permission tab for the database in azure portal?
