Semantic model refresh fails only when scheduled, succeeds when refreshed manually in Service

I have a Semantic Model that connects to the Salesforce via Gateway.

When I refresh it by manually clicking Refresh Now - it succsessfully refreshes.

But when I schedule refresh - it fails with Salesforce authentication error.

I wonder why? In both cases it uses the same connection via same Gateway, correct?

What's different between manual refresh in the Service vs. Scheduled refresh?

Any ideas?




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 Salesforce source are invalid.

Hi @iBusinessBI 

My guessing is that the way you configured the gateway connection and there's a token expiration. Oauth2 vs windows credentials connection

The Gateway connection is Oauth2. Why should it behave differently when refreshing manually vs. scheduled?
Don't the two types of refreshes go via Gateway the same way?
