Hello, I have an Analysis Service instance running on Azure. Based on this AAS, my users are invited as guest users in my AD tenant. And they are allowed to read the data in AAS through Excel or PowerBI. They have accepted the invitations and created their ID&Pwd, even MFA with email/phone.

Now, we have a problem at the part of logging. For users who log in with Excel and PowerBI, azure keeps asking authentications, even they have already correctly enter their ID&Pwd 3 times.

I did not find the documents to configure this part or similar issues on FAQ.

Thanks in advance if you can have a look at this issue.

    I suggest you post your question in the dedicated forum--Azure Analysis Services forum(tag your post: azure-analysis-services). It is more appropriate and more experts would help there.
