SSO using OAuth for data sources in Report Server?

Is SSO with OAuth for data connection available in Report Server in 2020? I found this article mentioning that SSO using Kerberos to data sources was available and this was in 2017. However, I haven't seen info about SSO using OAuth for data connection yet. We're able to do OAuth SSO for data connection in Power BI Desktop but not Report Server.

@amitchandakthanks. I saw that article but it's about connection from mobile app to Report Server. What I'm looking for is about establishing a web connection from Report Server to a web API that requires OAuth SSO, so that I can pull data from the API to the Report Server

@amitchandak  No, that article is still about connection to Report Server, not from Report Server to an API.

Unfortunately the answer is that this is not supported.


If you check the list of supported data sources 

you will find that anything that uses OAuth is not supported for Direct Query or Scheduled Refresh
