Quickbooks Online credentials

I'm logged into quickbooks online on Power BI desktop just fine and everything refreshes. I published it to my workspace and went to set an autorefresh and it asked me to log into QBO. I logged in but then I get this error message. It's the same credentials from the desktop. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

This solution did not work for me. I don't have an ODBC Quickbooks driver

Hi,

 

I've found a fix for this using the on premise gateway. but will probaby work for personal gateways.

Find where your power BI desktop is installed and go to the ODBC Drivers folder. For me is was "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Desktop\bin\ODBC Drivers" however this may be different for you if you have the windows store version.

 

Copy the folder named "Simba Quickbooks ODBC Driver" (I made a zip file from this folder as we need to copy this to where the gateway is installed)

 

On the machine where your gateway is installed, go to "C:\Program Files\On-premises data gateway\m\ODBC Drivers\" (Again will be different for personal gateways). Delete the folder named "Simba Quickbooks ODBC Driver" then paste/extract the one we copied earler.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi @fhovey ,

 

When using the Power BI service for automatic refresh, please ensure that the Power BI gateway is installed and correctly configured.

 

The gateway acts as a bridge between on-premises data and cloud services. It is essential for refreshing data sets that are not directly connected to cloud services.

 

The steps are as follows:

 

Select the gear icon in the upper right corner.

Click new in the upper left corner to configure data source information.

After the configuration is complete, go to the workspace and select semantic model.

Check that the information for the two options below is correct.

For more information on setting up and configuring your gateway, please see:

Manage your data source - import and scheduled refresh - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

 

When setting up dataset refresh in the Power BI service, make sure you select the correct authentication method for QuickBooks Online.

 

Edit the dataset settings in the workspace to verify and update this information.

Hi. Im having the same issue as this however my has been working previously for 2+ years and has only in the last week or 2 started getting this error. Nothing has changed my side. I didn't have to use a gateway previously but I have also tried with our gateway and it still doesn't work.

Thanks

I got this error when trying to sign in after setting up the gateway

Hi @fhovey ,

 

The error message "Error while reading configuration file:C:\Program Files\On-premises data gateway\m\ODBC Drivers\Simba Quickbooks ODBC Driver\QuickBooksODBC.mdef" means:

 

There is a problem with the configuration file.

 

Please make sure the file path is correct and that the file exists in this location.

 

If the file or path is incorrect, please adjust it to the correct location.

 

The error message "Unable to connect to the data source. Either the data source is inaccessible, a connection timeout occurred, or the data source credentials are invalid." means:

 

There is a problem with the data source credentials or they have occurred.

 

Please double check that the credentials used for the QuickBooks data source are correct, you may need to update or re-enter the credentials in the gateway configuration.

 

If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me.

But why would I need an on-prem gateway to begin with since QBO is online?

Hi @fhovey ,

 

Do you mean your dataset is on a cloud service and not on-premises?

 

If your dataset is on a cloud service you really do not need a gateway.

 

If your dataset is local and connected through Power BI Desktop and then published to Power BI Service, a gateway is required.

 

In your original problem description, the 400 status code indicates that the data source credentials are incorrect.

 

Can you make sure that under the dataset settings you have updated the credentials to the correct location?

 

Maybe you can use OAuth2 authentication instead of basic authentication.

 

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.

Yea it's quickbooks online. I've logged in fine on the desktop and the credentials work there. But when I push it to the service the same credentials don't work.

Hi @fhovey ,

 

The 400 error code indicates that the data source credentials are incorrect.

 

Can you make sure that under the dataset settings you have updated the credentials to the correct location?

 

Maybe you can use OAuth2 authentication instead of basic authentication.

 

These two cases may be helpful to your problem.

It doesn't give me the option to select basic auth
