Report Server Add Data Sources "Something Went Wrong"

Hi,

 

I am working on a new installation of the latest version of PowerBI Report Server (14.0.600.442) and as soon as I click on "+ New" "Data Source" I get the error message "An error has occurred.
Something went wrong. Please try again later. "

 

I found I am able to publish and use Data Sources through Visual Studio, but I cannot manage them through the Web Portal.

 

Any ideas what could be wrong here?

 

Kind Regards,

Etienne

My Data Sources which were deployed from Visual Studio are correct and they work, but I cannot manage them in the web portal because as soon as I open to view the details I get the error.

Hi,

 

I still have this issue and the only workaround I have found it to publish the Data Source correctly from Visual Studio, but managing them in PowerBI Report Server is still not possible.

 

Good luck!

Re: Report Server Add Data Sources "Something Went Wrong"

I had resolved this issue. just remove the webportal and webservice url one by one than bind it agin one by one and restart powerBI service from Report Manager and check.

 

It may resolve issue.

 

but now one another thred is there, all old PowerBi reports are not opening "something went Wrong Error is there". I have checked whtich new version of PowerBI Destop also but problem is still there.

 

Now i am down grading my Report Serer to  Version 1.1.6514.9163 (October 2017)

Re: Report Server Add Data Sources "Something Went Wrong"

I'm new to all of this, but I am having the same issue. I have tried remove the web portal binding and recreating them, but this did not work for me.  Has there been any other resolution to this problem that I've missed?

Re: Report Server Add Data Sources "Something Went Wrong"

Hi @K_Rock ,

are you the Content Admin and Server Admin in the Portal? May be you can shut down the service and start it again...go to Report Server Configuration Manager and push the Stop Button and then start again.

 

Best,

Kathrin

Re: Report Server Add Data Sources "Something Went Wrong"

@KBO  - Yes full admin to all and access to the server as well.  I've tried everything that I can think of.  I had SSRS and PBRS installed.  I've removed SSRS and on PBRS I've removed all the bindings and back to original baseline.  No matter what I do when I click New Data Source, I get a page that looks like this.

If I click 'Ok' I cannot enter text into any of the fields.  I was able to publish a data source, but cannot manage it, same message.

Hi @K_Rock ,

which browser do you use? Power BI Report Server is known as he don't like edge or IE very much 😉 - try firefox or chrome.

 

Best,
