How to authenticate PBI Rest API with MFA ?

I need to automate a PowerShell script that accesses the Power BI Rest API and does some stuff.  I have the script working fine.  The hurdle is how to authenticate with Power BI when automating the PS script?  Note that my organization uses MFA authentication

 

Thanks much!

Hi @Dan_Sprague ,

 

I'd recommedn go for SPN Autentication instead of username/password type.
