Issue: can you adjust the browser Power BI desktop uses to login to salesforce?

We are trying to connect Salesforce reports using Power BI Desktop.  When we are prompted with the salesforce login we use custom domain, and then use SSO login.  We are getting an error when logging in that way.  We get the same error when trying to login to salesforce through an IE browser.


Is there a way to adjust the browser Power BI desktop uses to login to salesforce?




It seems that there is no option to change the browser PBI Desktop uses. We can only make sure that we can login with IE successfully.

Hi there,

Would you mind posting some info on how you managed to pass login credentials to SalesForce?

I am trying to find a way to reuse the data-access settings we already have in SF. 

Otherwise we have to begin replicating these via row-level security in PowerBI.


Say, I developed a PowerBI report using my SF credentials. What needs changing to be able to allow the user specific data settings in SF to kick in after I publish.


Not expecting step-by-step guidance, but some description of the big picture would be sincerely appreciated!


Many Thanks!



Did you identify any solution for this? 

Having the same issue.. using custom URL and SSO and it brings up a page that IE is not supported with no other option. 

We are basically not able to connect to Salesforce in Power BI Desktop because of this. 


I also cannot login. Have you found a workaround @vickyd ?
