Change credentials with Power Bi Desktop for Github

I have tried to change by Github credentials but Power Bi Desktop always re-signs me in with my prior credentials.  I've tried the suggestion at:


to clear browser data, and it still retains my previous credentials.  I cleared both Chrome and Edge which Power BI was runnning or shut down, without effect.


Any suggestions?


Thank you,




Hi @Anonymous,


As you connected to Github from Power BI desktop, you should clear the cache stored in desktop. Click File-> Options and Settings -> Data Source settings, choose the Github data source, then, clear credentials for it.

Yes, I have done this.  I have also tried clearing the browser caches.


After "Clear Permissions" it does ask me to log in to Github again.  I am able to enter repository information: (Owner/Repo Name).  Then it says "You aren't signed it" and offers a "Sign In" button.  As soon as I press the Sign In button it signs me in under the previous credentials without asking for new credentials.  The system will now offer a "Sign in as different user" button however each time I click that it signs me back in immediately still without asking for new credentials.
