Error: Failed to update data source credentials

I have published one report to my own workspace and to shared workspace. I get update schedule working in my own workspace but in shared workspace I cannot set up credentials because of the following error:



Is there anything that I'm doing incorrect or what is this sorcery?

In my dataset I have two data sources: Excel file from OneDrive (works) and Azure SQL database (gives the error).


Hi @tondeli,


From your description, the same report exist both in My workspace and a group space, you are able to set credential for data sources in My Workspace while can't do it in the group workspace, right?


In your scenario, please run the Fiddler then repeat the steps to edit credential. Share .saz file here. You can upload trace file to OneDrive and share the link here.

Does generated .saz file contain sensitive information like user names or passwords?

Does this error mean that I need to open yet another IP address to Azure SQL Firewall? I have already done that but the IP is different this time.

I need to add that IP-list to my SQL firewall settings.


...and my IP is listed (I didn't know how to read that list). So, what I need to do is to add that list into my firewall rules. Anyone know how to do that from .xml file, not sure how effective it is to input those IPs manually every week?


@tondeli@RasikaOgale You can upload .saz file to your OneDrive and share the link in private message.
