We are happy to announce that we have just released the December update for the On-premises data gateway (version 3000.21.18)

  •  December Version of the mashup engine
  • GA of Kerberos based Single Sign-On (SSO) for
    • SAP BW Message Server
    • Oracle

GA of Kerberos based Single Sign-On (SSO) for SAP BW Message Server and Oracle 

You have been able to use Single Sign-On, leveraging Kerberos, when connecting to some data sources including SAP BW Application Server in DirectQuery mode from Power BI. You can now also connect to SAP BW Message server using Single Sign-On leveraging Kerberos.

Once you install the latest gateway, browse to the manage gateways page. Select the intended gateway and click on “Add data source”. When you select SAP BW Message Server data source type, you should see the SSO for Kerberos option(highlighted below) now.

Similarly we have also enabled SSO leveraging Kerberos for Oracle also.

December version of the mashup engine

This month’s Gateway update also includes an updated version of the Mashup Engine, which will match the one released as part of the Power BI Desktop December update This will ensure that the reports that you publish to the Power BI Service and refresh via the Gateway will go through the same query execution logic/runtime as in the latest Power BI Desktop version.

Please continue to send us feedback for what new capabilities you’d like to see in the future.
