I recently configured Power BI integration for a Dynamics 365 for Operations customer. And while the following article on
Getting Started with Power BI and Dynamics 365
To configure Power BI integration with Dynamics 365 for Operations, the following criteria must be met:
1. You must have Azure Active Directory (AAD) administrator privileges
2. You must be assigned to the System Administrator role in Dynamics 365 for Operations
3. You must have had at least one user sign in to PowerBI.com before
4. You must be using the same tenant for both your deployment and the user login
Example: If Dynamics 365 was deployed under the contoso.com tenant, the user login for both Dynamics 365 and Power BI should be in the format [email protected]
Power BI Integration Steps:
1. Go to
2. Sign in with your AAD Admin account and complete Step 1 by clicking Sign in with your existing account.
3. Assume this is my Dynamics 365 Production URL:

4. Grant access to the Power BI API's in Step 3.
5. Click Register App to retrieve the client ID and client secret which we will paste into Dynamics 365.
NOTE: Be sure to copy the client secret and keep it safe until we are done. Once the screen is gone, the key is gone.
6. If you want to remove this registration or review it you can do so by:
a. Login to
b. Click More services
c. Search for App Registration and click on it
d. Select your App Name for additional details:
To delete the app registration, I've found that in the Beta portal you need to mark Multi-tenanted as NO before the Delete option becomes available. This is found in the Properties pane after selecting the app from the App registrations pane.
If the option is not there, click Manifest and change "availableToOtherTenants": true to "availableToOtherTenants": false.
