Anonymous authentication in Power BI Report Server

Hi Everyone,

  • we are using powerbi report server to share the dashboard with others.
  • we will be adding the powerbi reports  <iframe> link to the sharepoint site where end user can access the reports.

The senario is 

  1. whoever click the iframe link on the sharepoint website, they should be able to open the powerbi reports without assigning any permisson on the report server.
  2. End user cannot use ther AD account to log in powerbi report server.

how could I achivie this in power bi report server, Is there something to configure in reportserver config file or web config file.

 

Note: To logon sharepoint we are using custom authentication (Not Active directory )

 

Please share the possible ways to achive this.

Power BI Report Server is built on the same base as SSRS and uses the same authentication mechanisms. As you can see here Authentication with the Report Server - SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) | Microsoft Learn the default options use windows AD based authentication. But there is an option to implement a custom authentication provider.

 

This does require writing custom code, but maybe you can integrate this with your Sharepoint authentication. See here for more details Configure Custom or Forms Authentication on the Report Server - SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS)...
