How to publish with different email account PowerBI desktop

Hello all,

 

I have logged in Power BI desktop with my work account to create one document, but now I want to switch to another account (a Pro account) to publish the report. First of all I sign out, and then click "Sign in" again. At this moment, I type the email from the pro account, but directly it makes a redirection and it signs in with the previous account. How can I solve this?

 

Thank you very much

 

Kind regards

I’ve got response from the Product Team.

 

This is expected behavior. Power BI uses domain-join authentication, i.e. if your computer is a domain-join computer and you log in using your domain-join account, then Power BI will use the domain-join account (and you can't user another domain-join account).

If you want to use another domain-join account (e.g. test@microsoft.com), you can do that on a non-domain-join computer. Another workaround is this

- Create a local account for your machine (e.g. administrative account)

- Log out of your machine

- Log in to your machine using the local account

- Log in to Power BI using your domain join account (e.g. test@microsoft.com)

 

Best Regards,
Herbert

Hello,

I have similar problem when trying to switch account to connect to a datasource from a dataset in Power BI service.

We want to use a service account to connect to the datasource to refresh the dataset but it keeps using mine even after I did the change.

Is it caused by the samething?

Thank tou

Thank you very much for your response. I was trying to log in with another account in the same domain-join account, but I see it is not possible.

Would it be nice if Microsoft give us an option publishing into other account? I'm running the same headached.
