Datasource can't connect in Report Server

I've created a query in our CRM that outputs the prospect ID for each lead. The JSON query URL is public and accessible via this link: https://admissions.som.yale.edu/manage/query/run?id=04b3e32f-cd87-4431-8eb4-182e5d493c91&h=43ba54aa-...

 

However, when I add this as a datasource in Power BI Desktop and then upload the Report Server, it shows that the connection can't connect. What's also interesting is that the connection string isn't displaying the full JSON URL that I uploaded into the report. For some reason, it is only returning the portion of the URL before the ?

Re: Datasource can't connect in Report Server

Hi @blackhall8 

I have used your url and created a Power BI file and saved to the Power BI Report Server Succesfully.

I tried to add a data source and I received a similar error as the one you received. This did not deter me as I have noticed that this has occurred before with other odata connections I have. I then created a scheduled refresh and ran it. Completed Data Refresh was the result. Can you give it a try and see if it works for you.

@George1 - You are absolutely right! Despit the test connection not working, the scheduled data refresh worked fine and the "Completed Data Refresh" was the result. Thank you!
