I'm trying to connect Power BI Desktop to Azure SQL, but I get "We couldn't authenticate with the credentials provided. Please try again."

it works fine if I try from Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio I can connect with no problems with the same username/password

enter image description here

what I'm missing?


To get around this problem, notice that "Windows" is highlighted at the left of the dialog box. I clicked on Database, entered the database credentials, and then it worked.
