PowerBI Desktop Sign In fails with SSL Decryption

L1 Bithead

We are rolling out SSL Decryption for a group of test users and we run into an issue with PowerBI Desktop.

When we try to login in PowerBI Desktop it fails and shows that it cannot setup a trusted SSL/TLS connection for the sign in.


I am looking into my decryption logs, but I cannot find any issues with URL's that might have something to do with PowerBI so I don't know what to exclude to fix this.


When I disable ssl decryption, it works OK right away.


Is anybody familiar with this issue or able to point me into the right direction to troubleshoot this?

Are you decrypting the regular list of Microsoft services for M365 decryption issues? You generally can't decrypt this sign-on traffic when it comes to Microsoft. 

Thanks, that does indeed seem to be the issue.

Is there a KB for this to see what URL's I should exclude from decryption?
