PBI Report Server failing to authenticate sharepoint credentials



i am trying to pick an excel doccument from onedrive,analyse it in powerbi and add it to scheduled refresh however when i put my windows credentials for the share point data source i get an error of incorrect username and password,i have read through all your posts on such an issue but i still can't figure it out

Unfortunately OneDrive is not listed as a supported data source (see I imagine it falls into the same situation as Sharepoint online lists, where you can connect with the Desktop client but cannot schedule a refresh. I believe this might be due to the fact that the on-prem report server does not have the integration with the cloud authentication mechanisms.

Thank you for the response.

How about if i also tried accessing the file from the Organisation sharepoint folder but when i tried to refresh,it would still show that the credentials for the sharepoint data source are incorrect.I was using my windows credentials.


If it's not possible,please recommend an online collaborative tool that works perfectly with powerbi shceduled refresh.I tried smartsheet but it also doesnt work with scheduled refresh.


Please help
