Not able to use PowerBI Service from MS Learn Lab08 'Using PowerBI visuals'

New Contributor



I'm going thru the learningpaths for DA100 exams. In the module 'Working with PowerBI visuals' I'm running into a problem with the Lab(08). During Lab 1 until 7 I used the PowerBI Desktop at the  remote desktop environment using the student account to log on.

In Lab08 I need to sign in to the PowerBI Service which requires a work or schoolaccount. I have a workaccount but I'm not allowed to use this account within the MS Learn environment. I assume for security reasons. I also tried to use my private MS account, however MS Learn doesn't allow that.


I assume I'm not the only one facing this problem, anyone a solution?


Kind regards

Hello @Michel_de_Wit,

If you are unable to sign into your work account in the Learn environment you will need to create a trial account to complete the labs. Details can be found here - this will give you a tenant that you can use for 30 days that can be renewed.
