Power BI Embedded without Microsoft Entra ID (Azure AD)

Hi all,


I want to use Power BI embedded to embed a dashboard for customers without using MS Entra ID. Is this possible? How do I go about doing it?

Thank you in advance!

Hi  @mit1 ,


The embed for your customers solution uses a non-interactive authentication flow. In an embed for your customers solution, users don't sign in to Microsoft Entra ID to access Power BI. 

The reserved identity can be either a service principal or a master user:

When using a service principal, you need to enable Power BI APIs access in the Power BI service admin settings. Enabling access allows your web app to access the Power BI REST APIs. To use API operations on a workspace, the service principal needs to be a member or an admin of the workspace.

Oh great, thank you for your reply, does that mean I do not have to register for MS Entra ID?
