If your authentication mode does not work or you receive error mentioned above, you must adjust the configuration to
authenticate the user with a different mode. Use the Proxy IP authentication mode instead of the Proxy authentication
mode. This example does not bypass authentication.

Connecting through a Proxy with Power bi Desktop:
Web requests issued by Power BI Desktop do not use web proxy credentials. In networks that use a proxy server, Power BI Desktop may not be able to successfully make web requests.
System or network administrators can allow the use of default system credentials for web proxy authentication. Administrators can create a registry entry called UseDefaultCredentialsForProxy, and set the value to one (1) to enable the use of default system credentials for web proxy authentication.
The registry entry can be placed in either of the following locations:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft Power BI Desktop]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Power BI Desktop]
It is not necessary to have the registry entry in both locations.
Once the registry entry is created (a reboot may be necessary) the proxy settings defined in Internet Explorer are used when Power BI Desktop makes web requests.
As with any change to proxy or credential settings, there are security implications to creating this registry entry, so administrators must make sure they have configured the Internet Explorer proxies correctly before enabling this feature.
Considerations and limitations:
There are a collection of security implications that administrators should consider before enabling this capability.
The following recommendations should be followed whenever enabling this feature for clients:
