What kind of validation that you need? Is it related to Data or Metadata?

 

You can also Check Row count of all tables in Power BI and compare it with SQL Database Tables.

 

For further data validation, you write queries with filters and apply the same on Power BI.

 

Also, you can check the "Native Query" of your Import Data that is actually running behind at SQL Server to match values.

Hi @GaneshReddy643 ,

 

What exactly do you mean by verification method. Refer to the following suggestions to see if they can help you.

 

To connect to a sql server data source in powerbi, the first option is to enter the appropriate credentials, which are your credentials to log in to sql server,

followed by selecting the connection mode. The difference between them is as follows:

When there is an error connecting to the data source, consider whether there is a problem with the credentials. Clear permission in the Data source setting and reconfigure the credential information
