The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure

I am having an issue connecting to my data source from the app.powerbi with the intention of having the data constantly updated. I want to connect to my data warehouse, which is in PostgreSQL. The error that I have is the following:


Failed to update data source credentials: An error happened while reading data from the provider: 'The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure.'


I managed to connect from the desktop APP, which I had the same problem but I solved it by turning off the encrypted connection because we do not use SSL and worked. I edited the following in the data source in PBI Desktop:


But then, in order to set the schedule refresh in the web app, I try to log in again to set it up and I have the issue again:



Is there a way to do the same that I did in PBI desktop but in the web app and disable the encryption or any other way to make this work?
