Azure SQL server Dataset can't refresh

Last refreshes failed for my Dataset, for approximately a month: The last refresh attempt failed because of an internal service error.

Activity ID: 5fe2670d-dfb9-4b45-869e-398e8abd5ff3

What is there to do? It's connected to an Azure SQL server and the credentials are fine. A firewall exception had been added and it was all working fine before.

If you could refresh it in power bi desktop?

or try to re-edit the data source credentials for this dataset then try it again.

Thanks for your reply! Opening it on Power BI Desktop and refreshing the data revealed an issue with a many-to-one relationship (from a corrupted entry). I could fix the issue in the database; the dashboard is back up and running!

This would have saved so much time if we had the error message directly in the "detailed" refresh message, instead of a generic error that means nothing...


Anyway, thanks for the help!
