Power BI Configuration Example
Specify authentication method
When creating a data source in Power BI, specify Microsoft Account as the authentication method, if available. This setting allows you to use your enterprise SSO to connect to your compute platform.
Set up DirectQuery
After connecting to the compute platform and the tables to use for your data source, select DirectQuery to connect to the data source. This setting is required for Immuta to enforce policies.
After you publish the datasets to the Power BI service, force users to use their personal credentials to connect to the compute platform by following the steps below.
- Enable SSO in the tenant admin portal under Settings -> Admin portal -> Integration settings.
- Find the option to manage Data source credentials under Settings -> Datasets.
- For most connectors you can enable OAuth2 as the authentication method to the compute platform.
- Enable the option Report viewers can only access this data source with their own Power BI identities using DirectQuery. This forces end-users to use their personal credentials.
