Issue with OAuth 2.0 authentication

Hello Everybody!

I am facing an issue to connect PowerBI Service to an Excel file on OneDrive. I created the visuals on PowerBI Desktop and when I update the file on OneDrive, the Desktop version updates accordingly without any issues. However, when I published the file to PowerBI service and tried to update the Dataset, the changes would not reflect on the Dashboards. I got the following error: “Your data source can't be refreshed because the credentials are invalid. Please update your credentials and try again.” I clicked on “Edit Credentials” and adjusted the authentication method for OAuth2 and I got the following message: “You need to use SSL (HTTPS) when you use OAuth 2.0 authentication.” Also, a new window popped up asking for me to choose an account to log in. I clicked on my account (the same one I use for logging in PowerBI Desktob and PowerBI Service) and then I am redirected to PowerBI’s homepage but I am still not able to update the Dataset.

Anyone had a similar problem and knows how to solve it?

Thanks in advance!

I managed to address this issue by going through the following checklist:

  1. Ensure that pop-ups are enabled in your browser.
  2. If you're not using Microsoft Edge and the error persists after enabling pop-ups, consider switching to Microsoft Edge.

I found this helpful checklist at: link.

Hi @v-diye-msft, thanks for your reply! 


I've adjusted my settings accordingly but I still face the same issue (You need to use SSL (HTTPS) when you use OAuth 2.0 authentication.)

I enable popup then it work in Firefox too.

I had the same issue in Forefox. In Chrome, this is not a problem. Looks like Microsoft needs to fix a bug in their browser !?
