I am experiencing the same problem. Both solutions suggested earlier don't seem to work for me
I would hate to see me fail on this course because of this technical issue. Any other workaround to finish the lab exercise would be greatly appreciated.
ps. Here is the message the webversion tells me when I try to connect.
I think you should use Power BI Service to connect the Azure SQL Database, the course lab7 exericse document was updated, you can use Power BI Desktop to connect Azure SQL Database.
Indeed I was following the course info, but as I am struggling for hours with KB articles without any effect, I am looking for alternative ways to finish the lab 7 excercise. Does anyone have a workaround for this problem?
The Power BI Service have updated before, It will not support to connect Azure SQL Server Database, so now, if you need to connect SQL Server Database, you only use Power BI Desktop.
I am getting the exact same message while connecting to Azure SQL Database from Power BI Desktop. I don't hav access to Azure Portal . So I cann't set the rules to accept my IP address. I don't see any instructor's email from whom I can get help. Does anyone have instructor's email ? Some threads here said to contact the instructor . So I am seeing if they can help....
I did manage to get it working using the Power BI Desktop. I used another system to make the connection and then it worked. I am unsure of the exact reason why it was not working. Sorry that I cannot be more specific.
