Using Microsoft Azure Enterprise data in Power BI - "Failed to update data source credentials" error



I'm trying to access Azure Enterprise data in Power BI, and I can't get the conenction working.

This is the error:


"Failed to update data source credentials: We are unable to connect to the data source. Please ensure that data source is accessible."


I am a Department Administrator, not a full blown EA, but I have the rights to download the billing data (this was delegated).


in the BI setup, its asking for an Account Key - do I need to get this frmo the account owner, or can I use the long API key generated from the EA portal?


Thanks all.

Re: Using Microsoft Azure Enterprise data in Power BI - "Failed to update data source credentia

you can use the long key

Also make sure to add your enrollment number


Your enrollment number is a  seperate field in power bi as a service


If you use power bi desktop, make sure to use[enrollmentnumber] as the website. After that use th elong key.
