Repeatedly asked for authentication: Analyses Services

Hi,

 

I hope one of you can help me with a workaround so I don't have to repeatedly enter Oauth2 credentials when connecting to the Analysis Services database. Goal of the query is to retrieve the report views from the Usage Metrics Report-dataset in a list of workspaces. I am currently using a Power Automate flow to query the datasets and store the information in CSV-files, but I would like to do this via Power Query instead. Please note that I'm not an admin of the tenant, nor will I get these rights.

 

I have the following code:

 

(workspaceName as text) => 
let
    Source = AnalysisServices.Database(tokenAddress & workspaceName & "", "Usage Metrics Report", 
        [Query="
            EVALUATE#(lf)
            SUMMARIZECOLUMNS (
                'Report views'[UserId],
                'Report views'[ConsumptionMethod],
                'Report views'[CreationTime],
                'Report views'[Date],
                'Report views'[DistributionMethod],
                'Report views'[ReportId],
                'Report views'[OriginalConsumptionMethod]
            )
        "]
    )
in
    Source

 

 

I am being asked to authenticate for each workspace, even though it's the same account I use to make the connection and it's the same tenant. Since I already have 104 workspaces to monitor and additional workspaces will be added automatically, this will not be acceptable if I can't fix this.

 

Do you know of a way to authenticate only once with Oauth2 for all workspaces?

Never ceizes to amaze me to what lengths people go to circumvent Microsoft's rules. Very inventive.

 

Ask your tenant admin to share the audit logs with you instead.
