Azure Maps Not Working (Initially)

I think I found a bug here.  Every time I attempt to use Azure Maps visual in Power BI, I get the error message "To display azure maps visuals, sign in."


I am signed in.

Azure Maps are authorzied on my tenant.

All is as it should be.


I switch gears and use the ArcGIS visual instead.  It works.

I switch back to Azure Maps.  It works.


Side note... where is the feedback button in desktop?

I've been getting this error. It doesn't seem to affect published reports. It seems to be an intermittent error. I just sign out and back in and it usually goes away.

@jusTodd , Make sure you have logged in Power BI Desktop.


Azure map is enabled at tenant level


Also make sure you are using recent version of power bi

Thanks @amitchandak .  Logged in Power BI, using lastest version.


Funny thing happened right after I posted this.  It randomly stopped working again, asking me to login.  Power BI showed that I was logged in, but when I hit the menu to login, it showed that I was not logged in.  


Weird behavior.  I understand what is happening now, but not why.

Thanks for the sign in hint. @jusTodd. I had to sign out and sign in again then Azure maps worked.a

As you said its weird behavior becasue I was already signed in. Maybe an update to Azure maps upset things.
