Data Source Credentials error after Publishing report



I get "Data Source Credentials missing" after i published a report via PowerBI Desktop.


Using a SQL username and password (not Windows authentication) to connect to Azure SQL Instance.


Connected datasource as "SQL Server Database" but connecting to Azure SQL Instance. Works correctly with both the internal and external addressese with ports when trying to resolve this issue.


Report works fine from Power BI Desktop and can connect to Azure SQL Instance via SSMS.
