Power BI publisher for Excel not working

Hello, 

 

Starting this morning I and a few users cannot connect to Power BI in Excel using Power BI publisher for Excel.  When trying to connect,  Excel starts to not respond and eventually times out into a "Failed to authenticate with Azure Active Directory HRESULT: CAA82EE2
Exception Details: The following system error occurred: (The request has timed out.)."  error. 

 

So far i've tried multiple computers with multiple different users. I've uninstalled and re-installed the add-in. I've rebooted my computer and i've tried multiple networks (inside and outside of the corporate network).  I know my password is correct.

 

Anyone else experiencing this issue/have any ideas?

Hi @TheNov3mberist,

Based on my test, it could work on my side:

Could you have downloaded the latest "Power BI publisher for Excel" to have a test?

And could you have checked if the account in excel is the same with the Power BI and check the version of your excel?
