Cannot change the user in Power BI Desktop

Hello All,

 

Actually I can but it doesn't get the data it should.

 

Step by step:

I signed in to PBI Desktop with user X, this account, no problem.

I get data from Google Analytics with user X, no problem.

My user X gets ww.T.com data, no problem.

 

 

I signed out, I have to sign in with a new user for another company.

I signed in to PBI Desktop with user Y now, no problem.

I try to get data from Google Analytics with user Y, but I still see www.T.com data, user X data, not the one I expect.

User Y supposed to get www.Z.com data, not the previous one.

 

2 different users from 2 different companies. The second user is not able to fetch its own data even though I signed out from the first one.

addition:

when I sign in to PBI service, online, with the second user, USER Y, I see the right data: www. Z.com.

I cannot see it on PBI Desktop.
