Im attemtping to complete the necessary steps to use the Power BI rest API to manage my data sets. Below is a list of the steps I have taken and the issue im having.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
So i attempted this again today on another Azure AD and found that the issue seems to be when regsitering for power BI using my newly created AD app account. it wants to send me an email to complete the registration but I wont/dont have an inbox for that account.
@jsalassi I'll step in to throw out some ideas, but I'm not an expert in this area. I think your issue revolves around the fact that you signed up with your work email. Are you using this with your company, or are you trying to make this a skunk works project?
@Seth_C_Bauer I originally signed up ithrough my work email. Then later discovered the Power Bi rest service for performing realtime updates and learned that i had to setup the Azure AD authentication in order to use it. Which is where im at today.
What this boils down to is the all important provisioining process 🙂
When you first sign up to Power BI, what happens is that Microsoft creates a tenant for you behind the scenes. Automated, of course and following some checks against the domain name etc.
I'll skip technical detail, but two key things happen:
It's the Azure AD bit that I feel is important in your case.
Currently, you have your work domain set up in an Azure AD instance. From what I can gather, you then set up a second Azure AD instance for the purpose of some configuration. So in effect, you now have two Azure AD instances.
I think the way forward for you would be to gain access to the Azure AD instance that has been created for the domain of your work account and set up whatever it is you need there.

Hope this all proves helpful.
Hi jsalassi, can you try logging in directly through app.powerbi.com with your newly created Azure account? There appears to be a problem retrieving your account through the provisioning service if you have not logged on once to the service.
