Hi. I'm not sure why you have that error but there is an easier way to configure this. You can turn on an option in the "Gateway Settings" menú to turn on hybrid refrehes (using gateway and cloud directly connected). You can read more about it in this post showing the number 1 as the option I'm talking about

After you turn that one you can just "Edit Credentials" in the dataset settings two lines above the schedule refresh to update that data (onedrive) without gateway.
I hope that make sense
