Same issue here. Considering that this post is already half a year old, has anyone found a solution to this?

Found a solution to this. 

 

You need to encrypt your credentials first, before you can make the API call. Encryption method in C# is described here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/encrypt-credentials

 

encryptionAlgorithm should be set to "RSA-OAEP"

 

See my stackoverflow post here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/56961746/power-bi-api-post-datasource-errors-with-dmts-invaliden...

 

I am going to try and build a JS / Node based encryption function and will post here when successful.

Do you have a update?

Joining in on the party. I have the same error when trying to add azure sql db's as datasources.

 

I can set the encryptionalgorithm to RSA-OAEP to avoid this error but then I get a 

 

{'error': {'code': 'UnknownError', 'pbi.error': {'code': 'UnknownError'}}}

 

Possibly because for cloud datasources it needs to be set to none according to the docs. But maybe it can help you to set EncryptionAlgorithm to RSA-OAEP (only accepted value according to docs) and see what happens.

Hi , 
I am  able to connect to odata source if it is of type "https" , but cannot connect to "http", I am getting same issue as above. 

is "http" considered as on premise connection?
