Alternative to Logout option for Power BI reporting Server

Hello family,

Due to its basic authentication nature, the Power BI reporting Server does not have the logout option. Now let's discuss from your experience the best alternative for the logout option.

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Thanks,

I have multiple dashboards, and I wanted users to be able to log out and log in to another dashboard. I always prefer to use URLs with an extension of ?rs:embed=true for the entire screen, so I have different links bookmarked, not accessed directly from the portals folder.

 

But the good news is I finally resolved this by creating a webpage with multiple links for each dashboard/report, and the user can now do what you are saying.

Why do you require a logout option. Because the default authentication does not require a login having a logout makes no sense since the user just has to open a new browser tab
