Changing Your True AAD Password

This community leverages your work email account for your password. You don't have a seperate password for this community, and we do not store any password information. Because you use your work email and password to log into the community, we recommend starting with the IT department of your work because there may be additional requirements put in place by your employer. Here is a link to how to update your Azure Active Directory (AAD) password


Changing Your Community Email 

If you change jobs/organizations and have a new AAD account (a new email address), you will need help with getting your new organization account linked to your existing community account. Please refer to this article and follow the instructions to create a support ticket.


If you will be without an organizational account, follow the directions for 'How to Register for a Power BI Community Account' found here: Then, please refer to this article and follow the instructions to create a support ticket.


Merging Community Accounts

There is no option for merging community accounts. It is OK to have mulitple AAD accounts, but we recommend having and using just one. 


Changing Your Community Username

When choosing a username in the community, it is important that you ensure you are happy with your choice. once your username is created, you are not able to change your community username. This is a standard practice as your username is tied to your community activity and reputation. If you feel as though you have a valid reason for wanting to change your community user name, please send an email to: with the specific reason for your request. Please provide your current username, your desired username, and a link to your community user profile. You can access your profile by selecting your avatar in the upper-right corner and selected "My Profile".

No Sign-In Screen

If you are trying to log in using your organizational account, but not taken to a screen with your login ID, Microsoft is not allowing access to the Power BI Community because your organization is in an unmanaged state. An administrator needs to claim ownership of the company by DNS validation before the application Power BI Community can be provisioned. 

Details for how to do this are in this blog, starting with Step 9:

In the meantime, if you would like to continue to contribute and particpate in the community, you can create a new (temporary) AAD account and then sign in to the community with that AAD account by following the directions above under 'Need an Organizational Account > Registering for the community.
