Power Bi Connection to Microsoft Business Central - User Credential Question

Hi

 

Let say we hire developer to design dashboard. Then we give developer user name and password to Power BI and Microsoft Buisness Central. Dataset get refresh from Microsoft Business Central into Power BI using developer user. If we remove developer user how we make sure data get refresh? Can we change credtinal between Power BI and Microsoft Business Central in Dataset? 

Thanks

Hello,

 

Yes, it's no problem to swap out User1 for User2.

 

You can do this in the workspace where your dataset is housed by clicking "settings"

Then go into credentials. You'll be able to edit the credentials here and reassign the connecting user.

You may see a message that the settings were configured by someone else, but you can take over the permissions settings on the setting page.

I think I did a bad job to explain what I mean 

Let say we create User1 and then User1 connect to BC and build the Dataset in Power BI and set the Dataset to refresh. Then User1 use this Dataset to build a dashboard and share a report/dashboard with others. Now, my assumption is Power BI uses User1  credentials to refresh Power BI Dataset from BC. 

What is going to happen if we disable or delete User1? My assumption is Power BI cannot refresh Dataset from BC. 

If this is correct is it anyway that we can replace User1 with User2 to refresh Dataset?

 

Thanks
