Sharing: Export Power BI reports to PDF and PPT issue

Hi all,


I would like to share the solution of issue that occurs when we export Power BI reports to PDF and PPT.



In Power BI service, when we export any reports to PDF and PPT, the message “Unable to export to PowerPoint/PDF” pops-out.

If we capture browser trace, we can find the error information points to password change. But the issue still occurs after we clear browser cache or use InPrivate/incognito mode to sign in Power BI service again to export reports to PDF/PPT.



We can subscribe any report to ourselves, then do “Run Now”. You can refer to this document to perform subscribe to report:

Once we receive the subscription email, export reports to PDF or PPT should be successful now.
