Connect to multiple SQL Server databases on the same server, but with different access credentials

We ar trying to connect to multiple databases on the same server, which have different logins. This isn't working, since PowerBI desktop does not allow for multiple connections to the same server. Pretty dum!

Has anyone found a workaround?

 

Thx

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

When enter credentials, please select the database level, not just the server level. Then you can connect to multiple SQL Server databases on the same server with different access credentials.
