Power BI refreshes fail with the error "Information is needed in order to combine data". This seems to mostly happen when I modify an existing query. Setting the file privacy to ignore does not have any effect. I'm merging data from google analytics and a personal office 365 drive. There is at least one other post and an enhancement request on this issue but any guidance is greatly appreciated!
I'm also getting this error. I have been working on a SQL Azure dataset and it's been refreshing fine both manually and scheduled for a couple of weeks now. Yesterday I added a SharePoint list and the manual refresh is working but the scheduled refresh fails with
Data Source Error: Information is needed in order to combine data
Cluster URI: WABI-NORTH-EUROPE-redirect.analysis.windows.net
The credentials for the refresh are set correctly for both SharePoint and SQL Azure
Same here. Just published from latest version of PBI Designer a solution that pulls from SQL on-prem and REST/Cloud via the latest personal gateway. Get this on Powerbi.com when refreshing:
Last refresh failed: Sun Oct 25 2015 19:23:57 GMT-0500 (Central Daylight Time)
An error occurred while processing the data in the dataset.

I have the same error...combining two excel files on sharepoint and in a separate file, combining CRM and excel. Both refresh manually correctly. Privacy settings set to none. Help needed!
Getting the same error here when trying to refresh CRM online odata feeds+azure sql db. Also, I need to fill in credentials for each odata feed while they all are for the same instance...
I see the same problem combining data from Google Analytics and an Azure database. File privacy is set to ignore and datasource privacy is set to none. I also tried with datasource privacy set to public for both sources. A solution to this is critical for our project.
