Connecting to Azure DB in Another Azure Tenant

We are hosting data in an Azure database hosted in our Azure Tenant and one of our clients wants to create PowerBI reports in their instance of PowerBI (seperate from our tenant).  Will they be able to access our Azure Database through a gateway?  If so, I'm guessing we will need to whitelist their IP Address, but since the service is hosted in PowerBI, what IP Address will we need to use?  Is there a another way for them to connect to our database?

Hi @jslade  your approach is correct, you can use the gateway to connect to azure database. 

 

Whitelist your onpremiese Gateway Server IP in your Azure Database, so that all the data goes through the gateway server and not directly via powerbi service.

 

If you aren't using the gateway then you need to open the IP range of Power BI server is updated weekly, which is very painful bcoz it will updte weekly.
