Unable to connect to Oracle Database in PowerBI Report Server

Hi Team,


I'm facing below issue while trying to connect Oracle Database under PowerBI report server for schedule refresh. 


The report server couldn't connect to the data source using the information you entered. Make sure you've entered the connection string and any credentails correctly.

The provider being used is deprecated: 'System.Data.OracleClient. Please visit to install the official provider.


But I have entered correct credentials what I'm using in PowerBI Desktop and I'm able to connect to Database in PowerBI Desktop. Please suggest what things needs to be takencare to get connect to PowerBI Report Server.

This does not sound like a credential issue. The most likely problem is that the server does not have the same Oracle drivers installed as your local PC. Someone with admin rights on the server will need to log in and install the Oracle drivers on there.
