Known issues

Beginning on August 1, 2020, Intuit will no longer support Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) for QuickBooks Online. When you use OAuth2 for authorizing QuickBooks Online, after August 1, 2020, only the following browsers will be supported:

  • Microsoft Edge
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Safari 11 or newer (Mac only)

For more information, see Alert: Support for IE11 deprecating on July 31, 2020 for Authorization screens.


Enabling OAuth Authentication in Power BI Desktop

Starting in December 2021 Power BI Desktop:

  • Install the new Edge Chromium browser, (at least beta) from https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/download.
  • In your Environment Variables, set the System variable PQ_EnableEdgeChromiumOAuth to true . Once that is set it will use Edge Chromium for only QuickBooksOnline. For this release, only QuickBooksOnline is enabled by default.
  • You should now be able to log in to QuickBooks Online.
