My set-up before starting work with Power BI Embedded was an Azure AD with a group that had a Workspace in the Power BI Service (app.powerbi.com) containing reports.
To be able to embedd reports I followed the steps here: https://app.powerbi.com/embedsetup/appownsdata
I've configured it to use Service Principal but when i try to read the report I get a 401 Unathourized back. In fiddler i see X-PowerBI-Error-Info: ServicePrincipalIsNotAllowedByTenantAdminSwitch but I can't find anything on google that helps me. I have allowed Service Principals to use API:s in the admin settings in Power BI Service. Anyone else experiencing this? I must've missed something basic since I can't find anyone with this issue
However when I follow the steps here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/embed-service-principal
on step 2 I tried creating a new AzureADGroup but when that didn't work i found that add a group user (Service principal) to the power bi workspace was the fix. Why this, what did I do wrong?
I had done that, didn't make a difference. But I left that behind now and stuck with the powershell way of doing this which worked
