Power BI – AAD Activity Logs App: The credentials provided for the AADData source are invalid

Power BI used to have Content Packs which were a way to package up your dashboards, reports, Excel workbooks and datasets for Power BI. Microsoft changed it now to so called Apps, probably to be consistent with their Azure terms.

There is an interesting App for Azure Active Directory to analyze the Activity Logs.

The reason was, that I had to switch my Azure Active Directory edition to Premium…

AAD2

…after this upgrade I the connection worked perfectly and I could analyze my data…

It seems that there is a Premium license required to use this powerful Power BI App. I haven’t found anything on the internet, so I hope it helps you getting this report up and running.

  1. Thanks Steffan. I spent 2 hours trying to work out what was causing ‘invalid credentials’ error. Upgraded license to Premium and it’s all sorted.
