Power BI bolsters Azure AS compatibility with EffectiveUserName support

We are announcing support for user impersonation using the EffectiveUserName connection-string property. This is truly exciting because it opens the door for mass migrations of tabular Analysis Services solutions that rely on EffectiveUserName-based impersonation to Power BI. It also opens new options for administrative tools and scripts to connect to datasets on Power BI Premium using different user identities! Impersonating another user can be as easy as specifying that user’s UPN on the connection string.

New authentication option facilitates AAS migrations to Power BI Premium at a low price point

We are excited to announce that XMLA endpoints on Premium Per User (PPU) now support Azure Active Directory (AAD) authentication with service principals. This authentication option enables administrative applications to perform automated maintenance tasks and unattended service-level operations by using their own app identities, which is often a requirement for migration of existing tabular data models from Azure Analysis Services and SQL Server Analysis Services to Power BI Premium. For technical details, see the article Automate Premium workspace and dataset tasks with service principals in the product documentation.

Announcing the public preview of Power BI REST API support for DAX Queries

We are very excited to announce the public preview of a new REST API to query datasets in Power BI by using Data Analysis Expressions (DAX). Among other things, this new DAX REST API helps to address customer feedback concerning programmatic access to the data in a dataset (for example, the idea REST API access to READ datasets with almost 500 votes by the time of this announcement). The new DAX REST API avoids dependencies on Analysis Services client libraries, requires no connection to XMLA endpoints, and works in Power BI Premium as well as in Power BI shared capacity

Announcing data gateway support for Single Sign-On (SSO) with Azure Active Directory

We are excited to announce General Availability (GA) for Single Sign-On (SSO) through the data gateway to cloud data sources that rely on Azure Active Directory (AAD)-based authentication. In addition to Kerberos-based and Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML)-based SSO to on-prem data sources, you can now get seamless AAD SSO connectivity to Azure-based data sources, such as Azure Synapse Analytics (SQL DW), Azure Data Explorer, Snowflake on Azure, and Azure Databricks through an on-premises data gateway.

Announcing general availability of backup and restore for Power BI datasets

We are very thrilled to announce the general availability (GA) of Backup and Restore for datasets in Power BI Premium and Premium per User (PPU). Whether you are migrating Azure AS workloads to Power BI or must consolidate Power BI tenants due to a merger or acquisition or simply want to backup Power BI datasets on a regular basis to meet the data retention and disaster recovery requirements of your organization, you can now rely on the Backup and Restore capabilities of Power BI as a fully supported feature.

Power BI + Denodo = End-to-end security through Single Sign-On (SSO)

Power BI integrates with cutting-edge big data, data warehouse, and data virtualization technologies, such as Denodo. The Denodo platform uses data virtualization on-premises and in the cloud to facilitate the adoption of a logical architecture or data fabric that can help to boost the productivity of Power BI report authors and business users through self-service data discovery and search. One of the key elements is support of Single Sign-On (SSO). SSO lets you enforce end-to-end access controls and security at all layers of the stack, from Power BI, through Denodo, all the way to the data sources.

Announcing support for backup and restore of Power BI datasets

e are excited to announce the public preview of Backup and Restore for datasets in Power BI Premium and Premium per User (PPU). You can now use SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), Analysis Services cmdlets for PowerShell, and other tools to perform backup and restore operations in Power BI via XMLA endpoints in much the same way as you would for tabular models in Azure Analysis Services (Azure AS).

Using XMLA endpoints to change data sources in a Power BI dataset

The purpose of this article is to provide Power BI developers with a deeper understanding of the dependencies when updating data sources in a Power BI dataset through XMLA endpoints. Most importantly, Power BI maintains security-related data source information such as credentials and privacy settings outside the dataset, whereas Azure Analysis Services and SQL Server Analysis Services maintain these settings in the data model.
