SapBusinessWarhouse Authentication Type - Windows missing

Hi all,


Currently we are not able to view Windows Authentication Type for SapBusinessWarehouse. It only shows Basic Authentication only.

Hi PowerBi team,


Any update regarding the above issue will be appreciated.

Issue: Windows Authentication Type not showing while using “SAP Business Warehouse” as a connection type in PowerBI report server.


Description: We are using PowerBI report server to connect to SAP Business Warehouse where we are not able to use SSO (Single Sign-on capability) using Windows Authentication mode.

We are seeing only Basic Authentication at the moment. Tried in old and latest Power BI report server version’s : Version 1.9.7675.15620 (October 2020) & Version 1.10.7737.32652 (January 2021)  still no progress.

It is working fine while using PowerBI desktop in October 2020 and January 2021 latest versions but when we deploy the file in power bi report server it is not working.
