The new Power BI (preview) web part for SharePoint Online is now available globally for Office 365 First Release customers. The web part lets you securely embed Power BI reports from your PowerBI.com account in SharePoint Online pages so you can build secure internal portals easily. The web part requires users configuring the web part and consuming the reports to have Power BI Pro licenses.
Let's use this thread to discuss the new Power BI report web part for SharePoint Online.
Please read the documentation before asking a question, posting a comment below. The documentation contains answers to common questions and workaround for any known issues.
When adding the Power BI (preview) web part, you are asked to sign-in but are not able to.
You will see error message similar to:
- "We need you to sign in again. Once you do, we'll bring you back here."
- "An error occurred, please try logging out and back in and then revisiting this page"
To resolve this issue, ensure your tenant is set to "First release for everyone". To enable SSO, the Power BI web part relies on new Authentication APIs provided by the SharePoint team and only available when First release for everyone is selected. See the Office 365 documentation for detailed steps

I got very excited to try this out. Been waiting a long time for this. I am a first release customer and added a Modern Page to my SharePoint Site. I added the Power BI (Preview) app to the page and immediately get the following error in the frame:
"An error occurred, please try logging out and back in and then revisiting this page. Correlation id: undefined, http response status: 400, server error code 10001, message: Missing refresh token."
I followed all the steps in the documentation. Any ideas?

Yes I sure did. Even cleared temporary internet files etc.. Same result in Chrome as in IE 11.
Now for clarification I am using an Office 365 Group with a Modern Page in that. Is that the issue? We have Modern Team Sites off at the Tenant Level.

Yeah - this.
It's one of the most frustrating restrictions placed on Power BI, heroin dealer-style: your first hit is free. Kinda bush-league, if you ask me.

I've added the web part and get a login prompt:

For those failing to login, please ensure your tenant is set to "First release for everyone". To enable SSO, the Power BI web part relies on new Authentication APIs provided by the SharePoint team and only available when First release for everyone is selected.

Thanks for the reply. I've set first release for everyone, waited a bit, logged-out/closed all browser windows, but still get the SSO authentication issue. Thinking it was a page issue, I created a new a page but now the PowerBI web part is missing from the choices! We have ~30 E3 users, maybe five of those have PowerBI Pro. Do all users have to have Pro in order for any of us to add the web part?
edit: just took an hour or so to update, but I can authenticate now.
