How do I properly secure the PBI master account used for embedding?

So microsoft documentation says this account needs to be a global admin in Azure AD.

 

Doesn't accept any MFA setup, nor does an app password work.

 

I seriously can't have a service account running our application stack running as a global admin with some type of security on the account.  Anyone have security requirements for how to set this up?  i've tried conditional access rules, but we're routinely having to cycle the rule.  Now management has requested to keep the rule off.

 

I can't accept that this is normal.  Anyone have any info here for us?

Hi @pjevans / @DiogoGuiomar ,

 

You can use SPN autentication which is more secure

Just upgrade your workspace to v2 if you are using classical workspace.

 

Issue resolved !

Oh yeah... we swapped to that back in July... Works fantastic, and got rid of our dumb "master accounts" . 🙂 . Soooo happy.
