dataflow invalid token

I am getting an error with he connection settings of my Dataflows. The data flow itslef refreshes fine and I can refresh from it locally on power bi desktop. But the refreshes on the service that use the dataflow all fail. When I go to check the settings of the data flow and re-sign in I now get the attached error? Anyone else had this?

Hi @gooranga1 

If you use Dataflow as a data source to Power BI Desktop and publish it  to Service, you don't need to configure a gateway on Service,In this case, Dataflow is equivalent to a cloud data source, and there is no need to configure a gateway, you only need to authenticate on the dataset side

I wanted to add my 2 cents in here as well. Chances are that if you're having this issue and the above doesn't solve the problem, you'll need to refresh your permissions in the pbix file. This is what solved the issue for me.

This just gives me more errors? Now I am having to refresh all my pbi manually on desktop and republish each day which is a nightmare. I am moving away from Dataflows, I cannot really see the benefit of using them unless you have a Premium subscription which we don't. And now they have been broken since last Friday.

Ah you can only use Chrome or Edge browsers to set this up. Is this a recent change as I have been using the gateway connection fine for about 6 months?

This actually started to work briefly again this morning and has now reverted to erroring again at lunchtime.

Had an hour long call with support on Friday but no solutions. I can't tell whether this is a problem at my end or microsoft's.
