Hi Experts,

Hi, I can only say that you should be sure you are installing both necessary modules:

  • Install-Module -Name MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt (CMDLETS) (YES TO ALL)
  • Install-Module -Name ExchangeOnlineManagement -RequiredVersion 2.0.5 (YES TO ALL)

Then remember your account must have PBI service admin role and exchange admin role. If you have all that I'm not sure what's going on. Maybe a newer version of the libraries have removed the request. There are many users with the same issue on the youtube video.

I hope that helps,

If this post helps, then please consider Accept it as the solution to help the other members find it more quickly.

Happy to help!

Thanks again.
