How to Utilize the Password Regeneration Feature:

  1. Accessing SyncEzy Portal: To begin, clients need to log in to their SyncEzy account at https://integrations.syncezy.com/.
  2. Navigating to your PowerBI Integration Details: On the integration page, navigate to the details tab and locate the connection details.
