Invalid credentials when trying to connect to data source to create dataflow

Hello,

 

I am trying to create a dataflow in the power bi service, selecting the "Add new entities" option. The data source that I select is from Text/CSV. I enter the file path, then select the on-premises data gateway I created. By default it gives me the Windows authification kind. I put my Windows username and password but it gives me invalid credentials. Has anyone been through the same trouble?

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Do you enter the domain when you entered the username? As my tested, if you do not enter domain, the issue will appear.

Hello @Icey 

 

Thank you for your response.

 

I do enter the domain. It is the one mentioned on my account profile under the "Your info" section. But it doesn't work. I will check again with our IT.

I have found solution to this problem

I creatwd a dataflow in the power bi service, selecting the "Add new tables" option. The data source that I select is from Text/CSV. I enter the file path, then select the on-premises data gateway I created. By default it gives me the Windows authification kind. I put my Windows username and password but I was getting error of  invalid credentials. 

I tried putting windows username which in "Email and Accounts", is under "Add work or School account". For me , Its gmail account and it specifies that "All Apps can sign me in", the i put corresponding  password and it worked.
