Power BI sign in

Hi all,

 

I'm pretty new to this world, so I have many questions. Usually I find a way by myself, but this time, I have no clues. 

 

What I don't get is how "sign in" and "login" work with Power BI service, in details:

1) I had to use an office email to sign in, how does the system know that my email belongs to a work domain?

2) also, that same email address is within an Azure AD in the Azure portal. When I needed to change my password, I had to login within the Azure portal and change it from the profile there. Can you tell me how the 2 are related? 

 

I guess Power BI user login is done through the Azure AD, but I don't get how that is possible. 

 

Even just a link to docs would be highly appreciated.

hi Richard!

 

thanks so much man! that link helped me to find this blog post: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-active-directory-and-power-bi/  which actually solved all my doubts. 

 

the key point is: when you sign up to any Microsoft Cloud Service, you get an AD 

- Power BI is one of the services of Office 365 which belongs to Microsoft Cloud Service

- any service that is part of that tenant (O365) does make use of Azure AD [here is the relation between AAD and PBI]

 

hope it helps other people, it's not a Power BI "thing" though. It's indirectly on the AD side

@dtrovato, AD connect is a typical setup for some corporate environements. See details here; https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/connect/active-directory-aadconnect
