BigQuery Access Permission Error (September 2020 Release Onwards)

Hi everyone, with the September 2020 Release of PowerBI onwards, MSFT enabled support for the Google BigQuery Storage API. I've reviewed the documentation from MSFT [here][1] and followed the steps to grant user permission as well as disabling support for Storage API using "UseStorageApi=false" but I still get the same error message:


ERROR [HY000] [Microsoft][BigQuery] (131) Unable to authenticate with Google BigQuery Storage API. Check your account permissions


Any ideas what else could be the problem? When I revert back to the August release, there's no issue.


Thanks in advance!
