PowerBINotAuthorizedException error in Power BI Flow

Hi there,

I've been trying to set up a flow that will send an email to a distribution list when a Power BI alert is triggered. I've been using the template called 'Send an e-mail to any audience when a Power BI data alert is triggered'. When I try to create the flow I get the error 'PowerBINotAuthorizedException'. The steps I followed and full error details are below.


This is what the connections look like when I set up the flow:

This is what the flow looks like:

It's able to read my alerts from Power BI so it's clearly connecting to it. Once the flow is set up and I click on it, there's an error message to fix the trigger:

When I click on the above it outputs the below error message:

Hi @freswood 


This happens once in a while. You need to remove and add the trigger. I know it's stupid, but this is some case of inconsistency in the Power Automate's permissions that triggers this.


In my case it happened to me and this was the only way to get it to work.
