Hi Experts,

 

I need to connect to Azure active directory in Power BI desktop and display the user data from AAD in Power BI reports. Is it achievable in Power BI?

Hey @Anonymous it would really depend on exactly what you're trying to capture from Azure AD but a lot of the information gets stored into Microsoft Graph https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/graph-explorer

 

This means that you would need to create a custom connector to access it. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/custom-connectors/define-blank . 

Here's a sample connector: https://github.com/Microsoft/DataConnectors/blob/0621c3d7e7cc4d32df2193e0d5ebfb488f344453/samples/MyGraph/MyGraph.pq

Hi,

I like to get the users from an AAD group into a PBI report. Is there another way, without PowerApps/Automate, to do this?

Cheers

@Anonymous you can use graph API to get AAD data. I don't have much knowledge but I know this is the route you can use to make it work.
