Can't delete a data source

I'm trying to delete a data source for local file, but it's not working. I have chosen the option to Delete (keyboard) and to "Clear Permissions". I also have a Data Source reading from onedrive, and it doesnt delete either (but I want to keep this one, because it will be the right one). Any ideas?


I did a basic autentication and I think it solved the issue! 🙂

One of your tables has coonections to these sources. Check 'Source' settings under transform data. Remove that table and retry. The stale connection will vanish

Hi @efilipe,


To delete the data source in current report, you need to delete all queries or tables connect to this specific data source manually. Then this data source will disappear correspondingly in Data Source Settings.

This is odd.


Let me explain. I used a URL to setup Sync between Power BI Desktop and Onedrive. The Link is something like:


It's working fine. 


But, when I publish my PowerBI project to the cloud, I can't get it to sync there, because it gives me the following error (Autentication problem/No credentials):

I believe the URL is wrong, do it's probably a wrong setup, I dont know.


Any ideas?
