Scheduled Refresh with Essbase Connector

I have created a Power BI dashboard that uses a connection to Essbase.  I can manually refresh the data via Power BI Desktop, but I cannot schedule a refresh after publishing. The error message (below) says that my creditionals are invalid, but I used the same creditionals to import the data from Essbase.  Everything that I have built is useless if I cannot schedule a refresh.  Any help is appreciated.  


Error message:

Data source error: {"error":{"code":"DM_GWPipeline_Gateway_InvalidConnectionCredentials","pbi.error":{"code":"DM_GWPipeline_Gateway_InvalidConnectionCredentials","parameters":{},"details":[{"code":"DM_ErrorDetailNameCode_UnderlyingErrorCode","detail":{"type":1,"value":"-2147467259"}},{"code":"DM_ErrorDetailNameCode_UnderlyingErrorMessage","detail":{"type":1,"value":"The credentials provided for the Essbase source are invalid.

Hi @Camelguy79 


If you are using a Power BI Gateway Server, can you make sure that if you log into the Gateway server, then from there you can successfully connect to the Essbase source?

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

I have to admit I am a little new to publishing, gateways, etc.  As far as I can tell, I am connected via a gateway.

I am using on-Premises data gateway (personal mode).
