Power BI service may be unavailable for a short period of time (10 to 30 Minutes) as part of planned maintenance, During this time users located near to the listed clusters or with tenants located in this clusters may experience issues accessing Power BI service and background operations may not complete successfully. After the maintenance window is complete, to refresh cached DNS values, all users should restart open browser windows, Power BI Mobile app users will need to verify they are using the most recent app, sign out and sign back in to the app. Once maintenance is complete and required actions are taken we expect the service to operate normally.
