Taking over a data model connected to a dataflow fails the refresh through an authentication issue

Hello PowerBI Gurus,

I use powerbi for data analytics with a coworker and we recently started using dataflows when we ran into this issue. 


-I set up a dataflow and connect to it with my desktop application using my credentials
- I build a model & report and publish it to the service (we split our models and reports using a script into two files)
-I push the dataflow, model & report from our DEV to UAT environment.

At this point everything works as intended and I can refresh the model properly. However, if my coworker takes over the datamodel specifically and tries to refresh, it will fail from an error. After looking into this, we have concluded it is caused because my coworker has different credentials which causes an authentication error and the only way we found to fix this is to open it up in desktop, authenticate there and republish / push only to have the same issue on the next take over. This is a very time consuming process for us and us we manage multiple different pipelines being able to take over from one another is crucial in managing them. It would be greately appreciated if someone knows of a workaround to this issue.

Thanks in advance for any help that follows!
