OData Feed - Failed to update data source credentials

I create a report on Power BI Desktop with a Project Online Odata feed as data source.

I can connect and update from PBI Desktop without any problems.


However, when i publish it to Power BI, and go to Schedule Refresh, i get this error under Data Source Credentials:


When i try to edit the credentials, i set to OAuth2 and enter the correct credentials but i got the error below:



 I'm pretty sute that the correct authentication method to Odata feed is OAuth2, but i tried the other methods and got the same error


 I'm not able to update the credentials in any situation. I've tryied to republish the reports, create a new one from scratch but i got always the same situation.


Best Regards,

Just to update, i still got the same error.

Is there any update on this? My client is in doubt if Power BI is really reliable.

I have the same issue.  The report refreshes fine in PowerBI Desktop but when published, the published version has the above mentioned problem


Any ideas?

I still experience this issue. However I might have some information to help troubleshooting.


This error only occurs when I specify the language code in the OData feed.


OK: https://****

ERROR: https://****[en-us]


Because I don't want to use our regional default settings (Dutch), I want to specify [en-us] to retrieve the English named table columns.


Please do fix this issue!

Hi Alexander


Thanks for this tip.  I did try this, however it still failed for me.

Hi everyone, From all these past communications and others, still having the same error on OData refresh! Is there any workaround out there to get at least a daily refresh of my reports connected to OData. In my case, I did edit the Query in PowerBI Desktop and the refresh from the home Ribbon works just fine. Now after pushing to PowerBI services and schedule a refresh returns the commented error:"OData Feed - Failed to update data source credentials. Any workaround or suggestions are highly appreciated! Thanks a lot! Walter
