Reporting an Issue or Missing Feature

I want to connect with:

Connect-PnPOnline –Url -UseWebLogin

But the user has not the needed rights. Is there any way to reset this and enter login credentials in the web form again?

Expected behavior

Maybe a -resetCredentials param that deletes auth cookies?

Which version of the PnP-PowerShell Cmdlets are you using?

  • PnP PowerShell for SharePoint 2013
  • PnP PowerShell for SharePoint 2016
  • PnP PowerShell for SharePoint Online

What is the version of the Cmdlet module you are running?

SharePointPnPPowerShellOnline 2.28.1807.0

How did you install the PnP-PowerShell Cmdlets?

  • MSI Installed downloaded from GitHub
  • Installed through the PowerShell Gallery with Install-Module
  • Other means

For me I simply exit out of the powershell instance and reopen and run the last command. Seems to clear out the cached login.

I also have this issue when i have one credential and is saved using web login.
The -UseWebLogin should have also the -ClearTokenCache used with the -SPOManagementShell to clear and give the option to choose another account.

I found out that it is using the Internet Explorer cache and cookies. If you clear them, the web login asks again for user.

Because my windows user is the same (on my work machine) as my normal login, it forces me to always log in with that. I also have an admin user, but I never get the option to log in with that. Tried logging out and clearing cache in Internet explorer and Edge, but it didn't work. Any other ideas to force a new login? I think with the Connect-SPOnline you can enter just a username so that when it asks for you to log in, it's as that user. Is there a way to do that in PnPOnline with -UseWebLogin on? Or a way to use the default browser instead of IE?
