Lab 7 - "The user was not authorized"

Hi guys,

 

I cannot login to "msedxeus.database.windows.net" using the given user and password.

Did try a couple times without success. Did check and recheck both login and password without luck.

Please advise.

Re: Lab 7 - "The user was not authorized"

I am also unable to access the database and re-opening Power BI desktop did not solve the problem. The credentials provided in the notes for the Lab do not work for me. I am also getting the error message about user not authorised. Any suggestions please?

 

Thank you,

  Clive

Don't worry about it - thanks! I managed to do the Lab via the Power BI service, so it doesn't matter that I couldn't access the server directly from my desktop.

 

Cheers!

Unable to connect via Desktop but everything ok for PowerBI Service.

Firewall was turned off, I used the same login and password for both services.

I had the same problem, but I made a mistake. Perhaps I'm not the only one.

I tried it first here with the given information:

Then I saw, that these are the credentials for windows.

I switched on the left side to database (Datenbank) and it worked.

very observant!  thanks - database credentials is the key.

 

If a few of us missed this, maybe the UI could be clearer - text at the top could say select Windows or Database credentials.  Or maybe a radio button on the logon form?

It would be helpful to have the Lab instructions clarify this as well.  Here is the page to edit.  Thanks!
