Azure Data Explorer: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

My Power BI report has been refreshing for a few weeks through an Azure Data Explorer query without issue.  Recently we have been unable to refresh on schedule or manual retries due to this following issue:


Something went wrong
There was an error when processing the data in the dataset.

The connection is just fine when I refresh through Power BI Desktop and can then publish the refreshed report, but that is not a maintainable workaround. I have no idea how to diagnose this issue.  Any help is appreciated.

Status: New

It turns out the report was edited online, but originally built in Power BI desktop.  It seems like the online editing broke the refresh.  Is this the expected behaviour?
