HTTP 401 can't connect to graphite data source

I’m trying to use graphite as a data source for grafana but it keeps failing with 401 basic auth failed. however I can access graphite via the browser using the same auth username / pass.

using the free account for grafana and graphite is on my server with the sitespeedio/graphite docker build.

I have it set to proxy not direct.

ok now this is is working.

I would like to stress that I changed nothing it just started working.
