Trying to access my storage account errors with "Access to the resource is forbidden" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I only noticed it today. Trying to access my storage account through Excel (power query) or Power BI Designer both deliver the error "Access to the resource is forbidden" - a connection previously made all of a sudden stopped working too with the same error. What has changed, how do I urgently correct this?

    I enter my storage account name >

    Prompted for a key, enter the primary access key from the Azure portal >

    Error!!!

  • SOLUTION to the "Access to the resource is forbidden" error when accessing the Azure Storage Account through Power BI:

    It turns out this had to do with my date time settings on my computer (Surface 3 pro) which got messed up during a recent trip to the US. After manually correcting my date time settings, I could start accessing the Azure Store Account error free.
