I uninstalled the App and reinstalled and now it is asking for a password. All working well. Can sign in and looks great. Smiley Happy

Re: Power BI for Android tablet (preview) - feedback

we have started building our reports for our company. I see that core filters are available in reports in android tablet app. Was wondering if those filters are going to be available in mobile app  too in order to avoid having slicers in reports.

Hi. Very excited about this but unfortunatley not working for me this morning.

 

The documentation does not work - just getting a blank page.

https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-mobile-android-tablet-app-get-started/

 

Also there is no requirement for a password on the app. Just asks for a username. Thus login fails. Does the user have to be approved somewhere else in BI?

Get the error.

 

"We couldn't sign you in

Could not authenticate because your corporate SSL certificate is untrusted by this device. Please contact your company IT admin. "

Shouldn't I have to put the password in?

Really looking forward to using this

Cheers

Re: Power BI for Android tablet (preview) - feedback

That sounds exactly like a big I'm currently experiencing with all office apps on my android phone. You can test this by trying to install and authenticate word, one note, excel. If they fail in the same way, the problem is something between the android devicee, the security certificates certificates and possibly something disagreeable between the latest android security updates and Microsoft's authentication process. I'm about to factory reset my phone to see if that will fix it. Microsoft have been trying to diagnose through fiddler etc but no luck. I can sign in on other devices, but am getting the error you describe on my phone. Hope that helps...

Sorry for that, please contact mpbisup@microsoft.com so we can continue the investigation of the authentication issue.

To me it seems more like something wrong with the app. Shouldn't it ask for a password when signing in?!

 

Or does the android device have to be somehow authorised with my corporate network?

You might be right but perhaps try the sign in on word using an office 365 or a Microsoft account ( eg outlook.Com) and see if you experience similar issues
