Json AAD unable to connect because this credential type isn’t supported for this resource

PbIAuthError.png

When trying to set authentication on my data source, I get "

We were unable to connect because this credential type isn’t supported for this resource. Please choose another credential type."

 

I've written my own web service in ASP.NET Core 2 that authenticates against AzureAD and provides a JSON endpoint which I'm trying to consume in Power BI. When I set authentication to Organizational Account and click sign in, I get the error noted above.

 

Is there something I need to change in my service so that it will work correctly with Power BI?

Thanks Lydia! I'm curious how authenticating with Dynamics CRM works then if AAD isn't supported. Was that a one-off deal? What authentication types are supported under the "organizational account" option?

You can get this error message if you're using any form of authentication with HTTP POST.
