Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount Interactively Failing

I am trying to use an Admin Service Account to administer Power BI Reports and Workspaces using the Power BI Powershell commands. 

 

When running the command, Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount, without any parameters, I can successfully login by providing my username and password. When trying to pass in the -Credential parameter containing a PSCredential object with the same credentials, it fails. Sample login below with error:

 

$secpasswd = ConvertTo-SecureString "$password" -AsPlainText -Force
$mycreds = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ("$username", $secpasswd)

Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount -Credential $mycreds

Hi @andrewsmith4

 

Based on my research, we can run the command below: 

 

Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount -ServicePrincipal -Credential (Get-Credential)

 

It will prompt a window for us to enter username (your AAD client ID) and password (your application secret key).
