Gateways - Update Datasource - Force Update Without Verifying With Datasource



I am currently facing an issue where I am trying to add an anonymous credential for my data source. However, when calling, it looks like the Power BI Rest API is calling the service after I give it the credentials (likely to verify that they are correct). However, because my data source takes a long time to respond, the credential REST call seems to timeout and not make my changes.


So, my question is, is there a way to force the credential change without it needing to call my datasource (since I know the credentials work) to avoid the timeout issue?

no, and it's a very long standing gap.  If this is important to you please consider voting for an existing idea or raising a new one at
