How can I automatically update a Power BI dataset from CSV files on OneDrive for business?

I have several CSV files that are in a folder on OneDrive for business and I want to automatically trigger a Power BI dataset refresh when the files are updated each week.  When I try to do a refresh on the PBI service I get:


Data source error: Scheduled refresh is disabled because at least one data source is missing credentials. To start the refresh again, go to this dataset's settings page and enter credentials for all data sources. Then reactivate scheduled refresh.
Cluster URI:
Activity ID: cf5b15f9-a555-4378-8044-e2be37c33da2
Request ID: e558dd5c-9e7d-3a79-c0b9-cbd9bd2f44b5
Time: 2022-02-16 20:42:40Z


When I go to the dataset settings it tells me "Use an On-premises or VNet data gateway" and the Data Source Credintials option is disabled.


Any suggestions for how to do this or what I am missing or doing wrong?
