external data refresh failed The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, Our tenant was just updated recently with the new versions. We did not deployed and dit not accepted the new feature deployment.

    All Project OnLine reports were refreshing perfectly in Excel OnLIne last week, i.E. previouly to the recent update. Now we get a 403 error on all Project BI center reports , either on standard Project reports or customized.

     thei message is :

    Error : external data refresh failed  The following exception occurred while the managed IDbCommand interface was being used: The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden

     Connexion : data_1_Projects ... (on all connexions)

    an error happened when the DefinedTIme tables was processing.

    I ckecked the site collection feature to use Excel onLIne refreshing odata reports : it is still there. I also checked the refresh in Excel client : it still works , but when you save with Excel client , Excel OnLine cannot refresh any more. Did anyone met this issue ?
