Data Flows - Azure Synapse Organizational Authentication With Different Account

I am attempting to connect to Azure Synapse Analytics with an organizational account that is different from the one I'm signed in with. My Azure Synapse Analytics access is through my privileged account, but my Power BI access is through my standard account.

When click change account it allows me to login with my privileged account but then just keeps reverting to my standard account.

Has anyone experienced this and found a resolution?

I have tried clearing cache and different browers with no resolution.

Hi @rd24 ,


Please try using the browser in Private or Incognito mode to avoid using any stored credentials to see if this solves the problem.
If possible, try to connect to Azure Synapse Analytics using Power BI Desktop with your privileged account to see if the issue persists.
I also found a similar post, please refer to it and see if it helps you.

Hi @v-weiyan1-msft 


Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I have tried using the browse in private and incognito and that didn't resolve the issue.

I can connect in Power BI Deskop, but I cannot create a dataflow in Deskop so that doesn't resolve my issue.
