SharePoint data source - authentication method service principal

Hello,

 

I see that the authentication method 'service principal' can be used to authenticate to SharePoint Online but it does not seem to work for me to authenticate. My data source is just a List in SharePoint Online.

These are the permissions that I have. Which permissions do I need more to get this working?

I am still having the same issue. When is Microsoft planning to fix this bug?

Hello @v-shex-msft,

 

I have discussed this issue with Microsoft Power BI support and it is a bug that should be looked at from their side.

 

 

Kind regards

 

Hello @naelske_cronos ,

Do you have more details regarding this bug ?

Will Microsoft Power BI team fix the Service principal authentication method for a SharePoint connection ? If yes, do we have an idea when ?

 

Thank you in advance.

Best regards.

I have also encountered this issue and would be interested in hearing if there's any way to track progress on it with Microsoft

Hi @naelske_cronos,

The snapshot shows the error message that provided credentials is invalid. Did you used the same type of credentials when you design power bi report and connection to the data source?

AFAIK, they should be matched or these credentials not able to be used and power bi will also notice credentials are invalid.

Hello,

 

In Power BI desktop it is not possible to use service principal as authentication method, only in Power BI service.

It is working via the other authentication methods like OAuth2 but not via the service principal?

 

Kind regards
