Everytime I open Power BI Desktop I'm being promtped to re-enter my login credentials... This appears to have started on 2.117.894 which was found after some testing. This is incredibly frustrating and annoying as I need to enter my full e-mail/AD password (multiple times) and also authenticate via Ping ID every time I open Power BI desktop. Previous version did not have this issue and functioned as expected caching the credentials, allowing me to open a new Power BI desktop window without needing to re-authenticate every time.
I have installed previous version of Power BI but am unable to open and .pbix file I edited in a more recent version... the following list is the versions tested to document when the issues started to occur:
2.115.663 - not re-prompted to login each time, user image shows up, pbix files do not load
2.116.622 - not re-promptedto login each time, user image shows up, pbix files do not load
2.116.996 - not re-prompted to login each time, user image shows up, pbix files do not load
2.117.894 and after - re-prompted for login each time, user image does not show up, pbix files load
The "user image" is simply my avatar that is set on office365 for my user account within my company
None of the labels made sense for this issue, but I was required to add one.
