Best practice for connecting Power BI to Azure AD?


I am trying to use employee data in Active Directory for a report and we are querying Microsoft Graph for this. We tried following the method in the blog below for connecting and it worked fine till I tried to schedule refresh. The current “anonymous” connection is not allowing the report to update.
