The Microsoft Azure Data Lake, OneDrive, and Dynamics CRM connectors support authentication via Microsoft user credentials, such as email and password. In interactive workflows, it is not currently possible to authenticate with different Microsoft user accounts across these connectors. This limitation does not impact scheduled workflows. In the case that you are authenticated with a Microsoft user account in one of these connectors and try to authenticate to another connector with a different Microsoft user account, you will see an error message pop-up. To resolve this issue, follow on of these recommendations:
• The Azure Active Directory Administrator can grant the necessary permissions to one user account and ensure the user building the workflow has one user account that has access to the services needed in that workflow.
• Log out of any connectors that are authenticated to a different Microsoft user account before trying to log in.
• Avoid using end user authentication when possible. Use service-to-service authentication in the Azure Data Lake connectors and Application login authentication in the Dynamics CRM connectors.
