Salesforce Connection - Browser error

Hi,

 

I'm having trouble with the Salesforce (Objects) connector.

It has worked perfectly this year, but lately it seems all our accounts on all pc's are unable to use it, and it looks like it might have to do with Salesforces Lightning version, which IE doesn't support.

PowerBI seems to be using IE in the log-on module, which gives a "unsupported browswer" error. We have tried using custom domain to get away from lightning experience, but Power-BI ends up in a lightning link anyway.

We have the connection running in PBIX which still works, but we can replicate or edit it.

It works fine with my personal "test" user, so I'm considering which settings on users which could be relevant - but I don't have any developers available (priority) to change or look at settings and don't seem to be able to access this information in Salesforce which my access.

 

Tried:

Reinstalling Power BI

Installing older versions of Power BI

Disabling Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer 11.0.145, 11.0.155

Several users and several pc's.

 

Maybe theres a way to force the Power-BI connector to use Chrome or Edge?

Anyone experienced anything like it?

 

Best, Rune

Re: Salesforce Connection - Browser error

Hi, 

This was fixed for me and I also managed to work-around the issue through Power Flow.

 

The fix was that, the SF team had disallowed something (login?) in Salesforce in working with Internet Explorer. When they reversed this, everything worked again. This is on the lightning version. 

 

However, I noticed I could still login through Excel and thought to try if I could login through the Flow interface and connected to the Flow source from Power BI. Maybe try to check if you can login through Excel (still Salesforce connection) or Flow.

Hi @RuneMikkelsen ,

After researching, I still don't know why it happened and how to solve it. I think you could create a support ticket to get a dedicate support.

Hi Xue, 

 

Thank you for trying, 

I'm not able to use the link. When I login it sends me to power.com and when I return to community om logged out. If I try loggin in from the community it says I dont have Pro, and its maybe because my Pro license is not activated internally and I'm on the test version of pro, until I get a Pro from our Premium bundle.

Oddly the connection works perfectly in Excel with the same connector. 

The Excel connection directs us to the "correct" landing page with OAuth2, but i'm not able to use it in custom domain in power-bi

Re: Salesforce Connection - Browser error

It seems that Power BI does not support Salesforce connection anymore. The reason is that Salesforce has opt out Internet Explorer 11 from supporting browsers and Power BI has IE11. Salesforce lightning doesn't have the option anymore to opt in IE until 31/12/2020 as they have announced. So PBI and SF are not connecting anymore and Microsoft should remove the option from data sources.

Hello,

 

I am having the same issue.

Is this a reality for all users? any comments/article from Microsoft about it? 

Thanks,

Re: Salesforce Connection - Browser error

Hi @RuneMikkelsen ,

does this work for you currently or has Salesforce again disabled login with IE?

At least I can not get data from SF to PowerBI desktop due to this error.. 

("We don’t support this browser. Try opening this page in a supported browser.")
