Connecting to multi-tenant database on Azure

 I would like to integrate Power BI into my multi-tenant accounting application which is running on MS Azure. 

 

Wondering what, if anything, Power BI does to help me isolate one client account from another. 

 

How do I use Power BI on Azure without running afoul of my Row Level Security?

 

Thank you!

Re: Connecting to multi-tenant database on Azure

Hi @davidbrown,

 

According to your description, you want to display Power BI reports in multi-tenant application, and the dataset sued by reports has RLS settings. When users access application, different users only see their own data, right?

 

Based on my research, Power BI Embedded supports datasets configured with RLS. In your scenario, you can try to use Power BI Embedded to achieve your requirement. For more information, please refer to links below:

Re: Connecting to multi-tenant database on Azure

Thank you for the reply. I understand that EMBEDDED is the flavor of MS Power BI that supports RLS. That is good news for my web app that is running multi-tenant on MS Azure.

 

Now my developers are telling me another problem is that Power BI Embedded does not support sharding so we may have to look for a different solution.

 

Is this true?
