Headshot of article author Charles Sterling

In this live event Microsoft Power Platform MVP, Ted Pattison, will teach you how to leverage the new app-only authentication support currently in preview for Power BI embedding and the Power BI Service API. Ted will also discuss emerging best practices with Microsoft’s App-Owns-Data model and explain why you should migrate away from older application designs based on authentication with a Master User Account. Ted will explain the concepts and demonstrate how to acquire app-only access tokens through Azure AD and how to configure app workspaces in Power BI to provide access to the service principals behind your Azure AD applications.
