Web API Certificate

Hi PowerBI Community,

Is there a way to add certificate in addition to regular WEB API basic authentication. We need to connect PowerBI to a third party app (ADP Web API)  that needs both certificate and key autentication for data retrieval. Please advise. 

Third party app needs these to authorize :

Client name, key, and signed certificate.


The certificate is now installed in both Trusted roots plus local account, personal. 

PowerBI returns a 400 bad request message

I am afraid that certificate authentication is not supported in Power BI Desktop, a similar idea about this issue has been submitted in the following link, please vote it up.
