Hi Team,


I have Analysis Services Tabular model Connected to Azure data set deployed to PowerBI Service as Dataset, When i deploy metadata it successfully deployed and then when we try to process the cube deployed under PowerBI Services -> Workspace -> Data set or Connecting Via SSMS then right click Process Full/Process Default ,i am getting below error message. Can anyone help me please ?

Hi there - I encountered the same issue, and it took me a while to work it out (but it's obvious once it's understood). Power BI doesn't send the credentials across when publishing, so once published, go to the data source settings and re-enter the credentials.
