Microsoft Power BI Plugin - Intermittent Authentication Error

Hi,

I am trying to use the MS PBI Plugin. Sometimes it works fine, but most often I get get the following error: 

2021-09-28 16:02:43,411 ERROR power-bi-v2 plugin - ERROR [-] Error while reading your Power BI access token from Project Variables

Any idea what's going on and how to solve the problem?

Thanks in advance.

I have discovered the cause - the connection wasn't correctly set in the recipe. Thanks.

Hi,

The error can be if your plugin presets are not configured correctly or credentials are not set up for a particular user. 

Can you confirm the :

1) The version of the plugin you are using

2) Are you using OAuth or Credentials? 

If you using Oauth can the affected users go profile and click on the "edit" symbol next to PLugin. Then you should be redirected to the Microsoft login page where they can approve access rights to their PowerBI account. Then the user can use the preset in the PowerBI recipe.

The version is 2.0.2.

I am using OAuth. I have found that re-entering credentials does not fix the problem. Only restarting my desktop has worked.
