Connection to Data Source - Authentication Question (PIV or CAC smartcard)

I'm hoping to connect to a SharePoint List data source. My issue is that the SharePoint site is only accessible via smart card authentication (CAC/PIV card).

 

The options I have are as follows:  "Anonomous", "Microsoft Account", and "Windows". I've tried variations of all three and haven't been able to connect to the SharePoint List. Can PowerBI connect via smartcard (I believe client authentication)? I know this was possible in other Microsoft Tools (e.g. SharePoint Designer) - but I haven't been able to figure it out for PowerBI. I'm not too IT saavy, just hoping to develop a graph for my team.

 

Thank you for your time

Hi @specoop ,

After my research, I'm afraid it couldn't achieve in Power BI for now. For your requirement, you can come up with a new idea and add your comments there to make this feature coming sooner.
