Re: PowerBi update 2019 January Direct Query Error!!!!

If your data direct query from SQL Server, the auth must use windows auth. if use basic auth will error.

Thank you! I changed the authentication method to an active directory user, with the necessary rights, to try out and it worked.

Is this common knowledge, that you should not use basic authentication with reports using directquery, or is this something new?

We have identified the issue here with Direct Query reports when using Basic Authentication and team is working on a fix. We expect to release it in next few days.

 

Apologies for this miss.

Thank you @vvnck, using Windows authentication rather than basic authentication worked for my issue.  I'd still like to see the issue fixed, but this is good workaround in my case.  Thanks for posting.

hi,

 

We are getting ready to ship the fix for the DQ-Basic Auth issue. What is the cross filtering issue you are referring about? If there a community thread about that issue or can you please share more details about it?

 

Thanks,

Rohit

Re: PowerBi update 2019 January Direct Query Error!!!!

We are using Oracle and direct query so integrated windows auth is not really an option.

 

Is there an approximate timeline for the authentication fix?
