Can't connect to PowerBI service account

I have installed "MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt" module and I am trying to run the "Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount" command but getting the error.


Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount : One or more errors occurred.
At line:1 char:1
+ Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount

Any help would be appreciated.

@krish89 did you find solution, I am having the same issue.

My script was running fine earlier, suddenly started having issue.



Same Issue on my side. Don't know why this is happening...

same issue here.

The script has been working just fine 3 days ago and now I started to receive this error.

@krish89  Are you using an AAD account to login or a Service Principal?

Any Luck? I'm receiving this error as well on a script that used to work @krish89 

@krish89 any luck with the solution? facing the same issue

@krish89 @RohGoy @Jasper_Baert1 @julmoser @stuPro finally found a solution to this issue.

So every time you open the powershell and before running your powerBI powershell script/commands, run the following command:

[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12

Dear Experts,

I am new to powershell script and running below small script and getting the below error.

Import-Module MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt
Import-Module MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt.Profile

$password = "mypwd" | ConvertTo-SecureString -asPlainText -Force
$username = "email address removed for privacy reasons"
$credential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential($username, $password)

Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount -Credential $credential



 Note: my userid is working but service account is not working.

Please help me to resolve the issue and thank you in advanced.
