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!
