OpenConnectionError TO Azure SSAS Server


I'm having some serious troubles connecting PBIDesktop to our Azure SSAS Server.

When all goes well i'm getting 2 logon screens (?), one off them will redirect me to our companies login system. After Logging init takes easily up to 30 seconds to get the 2nd one active, there I just have to tap again our login, this time no authentication.

Then, mostly after 1min everything works fine.

But, after starting PBIDesktop a few times with other app's, then going back to one on SSAS Azure i'm only getting 1 of the 2 login or even none.

In this case i'm always getting the OpenConnectionError and the only solution is to restart the whole pc to get back to a startup with 2 logons....

Very frustrating.2018-06-11 09_51_07-.png2018-06-11 09_51_25-.png2018-06-11 09_52_01-.png


Hi @Anonymous,


Firstly, I would suggest you mask your private info in the images.

The suggestion I can give is clearing the data source and trying again. I would suggest you file a support ticket here.

yes, a few release later this was gone.

Never realy found a 'solution'.

But still getting the 2 logins screen, but that could be due to our own interan OAth system.
