Connect BigQuery - R - "EvaluateNativeQueryUnpermitted failure:

 I have been using and R script to "Get Data" scraped from a government site and it had been working until a couple of days ago.  When I tried to run a modified script I get the following error:


Unable to Contect


We encountered an error while trying to connect.


Details: "EvaluateNativeQueryUnpermitted failure: the query '  .....   ' isn't approved for execution."


I modified the query to as simple as possible, it seems like Power BI won't run ANY R scripts anymore and I can't figure out why.  I can still refresh the the data with query I wrote a couple days ago using the "refresh" button but if i copy and paste the script into the dialog box it won't run.

I am having a similar error in my database.

I find a turnaround to solve this error.

I was using a parameter in the source and database, I switch to use text and the query works fine.

Hope I can help you.
