CREDENTIALS SHAREPOINT - Failed to test the connection to your data source.

Hello

My database is an Excel on the company's sharepoint, but I'm having trouble editing my credentials.

used to work, don't know what happened...

 

The data source on Power Query (desktop):

The error message on Data source credentials:

I've tried all the alternative solutions found in the forum but nothing worked (clear credentials, update the BI to the latest version and clear cache)

 

Is it a problem related to the security of the company?
I can access sharepoint lists normally, the problem is in the web connection
