Power BI service refresh without Office 365

Hi all,

I have power bi pro account but doesn't have Office 365 pro account.
In PBI Desktop, when I created a report via Microsoft Exchange Online, I can refresh data easily, but I fail to refresh data when published to PBI Service, and get an error message "credentials are invaild"(as per figure 1), even though I edited credentials and chose OAuth2, it still show the same error(figure 2).

I tried to create a new account for an Office 365 E3 trial and things go smoothly.
Is there any other ways that I can refresh data from outlook  in PBI Service and without using Office 365 pro?


Thank you!

Hi @rubylin,

 

To enable data refresh within Power BI service when connecting to Microsoft Exchange Online, you have to have Exchange online license no matter which version of Office 365 you use. Otherwise, above error message would be prompted.
