Dataflows Connector in Power BI Desktop

Hi, 

 

I succesfully created 2 dataflows in Power BI service and I would like to build a report on them in Power BI Desktop.

However in Dekstop I'm directed to the dataflows I've created using another account (during the Power Platform Summit Europe with a test account). 

 

I created my own dataflows using my own account which is the same account as in Power BI Deskstop.

I cleared cache, I reinstalled Power BI Desktop,.. but nothing helps. I keep seeing the ones a created under another account.

 

Any advice on this? 

 

Thanks!

HI @VSchepens ,

When you get data from data flow, your credentials will stored in power bi desktop. Dataflow connector will check user id of stored credentials to find out correspond workspace and dataflows.

So if you modify credentials, dataflow connector can get data from other workspaces but old queries(from other Credentials) will be broken due to authorize failed.

Hi @v-shex-msft ,

 

I will try to be more clear.

 

I made a few dataflows in PBI when I was logged in as user X. I made some other dataflows under user Y.

But when I log into PBI Desktop as user Y, I see the dataflows I created as user X.
