Connecting through c#



I am using code that was written for Microsoft Analysis Service, I changed my connection string to another server which is holding PBI Datasets inside. The code seems to work, but since there is a 2 way authentication process in my team, the code can't run from a machine. 

I want to use a token instead. Will this remove the need for the other authentication?

If so - what is the proper way to connect with the token?

I succeeded on getting the token, but I can't find the proper way to connect with it.


Right now the code looks like -



                Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Server server = new Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Server();

                    server.Connect(string.Format("Data source={0};", serverName));


What am I missing?

Hi @sonsi ,

You can refer the following links to connect to an Analysis Services server using a token in C#:

Get the access token:

var authority = "<tenant-id>";
var resource = "";
var appId = "***";
var appSecret = "***";

AuthenticationContext authContext = new AuthenticationContext(authority);
ClientCredential credentials = new ClientCredential(appId, appSecret);
var task = authContext.AcquireTokenAsync(resource, credentials);
string token = task.Result.AccessToken;

var connectionStringTemplate = "Provider=MSOLAP;Data Source=asazure://;Initial Catalog= xxx;User ID=;Password={0};Persist Security Info=True;Impersonation Level=Impersonate";
var connectionString = string.Format(CultureInfo.InvariantCulture, connectionStringTemplate, token);

var server = new Server();
