The 'user' value of the 'EffectiveUserName' XML for Analysis property is not valid



I'm trying to schedule a refresh through service on SSAS.


I've set up the gateway and it reaches the SSAS instance without a problem.


However, I get this error when I try to refresh error.png

My UPN is and that's what says in the blurred line in the underlying error message


However the admin on the SSAS instance is 'MATRIX\neo' 


I tried to Map the user names in the service so that '' becomes 'MATRIX\neo' but that doesn't work either.


The gateway is installed on a local server and '' is managing that gateway.


What am I doing wrong here ?

Hi @Yggdrasill,


It seems this issue comes from the SSAS server. Please refer to xml-for-analysis-parser-the-domainuser-value-of-the-effectiveusername-xml-for-analysis?forum=sqlanal....

>>>Turns out that you need the SP Farm service account to be an admin on the SSAS server as well.  That fixed the problem for us.
