Hi @Justair07 

Do you connect to Sharepoint source online or on premise?

As tested, If it is online list, after publish report from Power BI Desktop to Service, go to "Setting"->select this dataset->scedule refresh->edit credential


After sign in with my organizational account which is both used for Power BI Service and Sharepoint online list.

I can refresh succefully.


Best Regards
