Multiple Authentication Requests Power BI Desktop

We have an issue that we have been unable to resolve after multiple attempts. Each time a Power BI Desktop instance is opened, the user is required to authenticate two times. Users are all using AWS. We have cleared permissions for each data source and cleared the gloabl cache. 

 

We are using the following:

Power BI Desktop Version: 2.118.828.0 64-bit (June 2023)

AWS Version: 5.8.0.4065

 

Is this a known issue or is there a solve?

This issue was driving me crazy too - my colleague suggested ticking 'Use updated sign-in experience' under Options > Global > Security > Sign in experience and it has solved the issue for me.

Hi @v-xiaoyan-msft 

Was this issue addressed by the developers? We are a large organization and all of our PowerBI desktop users are experiencing this issue.

 

The above solution didn't work with us. 

 

Thx

Gabriele

Hi @v-xiaoyan-msft , likewise, I've only just started getting this issue about a week ago. 

Is there anything that can be done?
