I am constantly getting this error when I try connecting to PowerBI-Service using credentials that I have defined in PowerShell:

 

Import-Module MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt
Import-Module MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt.Profile

# Define Credentials
$userName = 'abc@123.com'
$password = 'example'
$securePwd = ConvertTo-SecureString $password -AsPlainText -Force

# Create the credential object
[pscredential]$mycred = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $userName, $securePwd

# Code here

# Login to PowerBI using account with service admin rights
Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount -Credential $mycred

 

Thank You!

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Please refer to the past solutions. The same error was encountered in this post, the reason is that some Power BI modules are not installed.

Solved: Re: PowerShell Login to Power BI - Write Error

 

Please install these modules.

MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt.Admin
MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt.Capacities
MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt.Data
MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt.Profile

That doesn't explain why I was able to access and run the REST API's just fine for over 6 months with no issues... and suddenly, now I get the same above error when It ry to run my PS Scripts. I was using the 'New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -argumentlist 'Username', 'Password' and passed the credentual to 'Connect-PowerBIServiceAccoutnt' just fine as I mentioned... then it just stopped working.

Hi, Is there a way to solve the issue without having an application within Azure AD

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

When you use the REST API, this is a necessary prerequisite.

 

To use the Power BI REST APIs, you need to register an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) application in Azure. The Azure AD app establishes permissions for Power BI REST resources, and allows access to the Power BI REST APIs. To learn how to register an app, see Register an Azure AD application to use with Power BI.
