Has anyone successfully connected to SAP BW using Kerberos SSO?

I am trying to follow the guide on how to set up an SSO  gateway connection using Kerberos to our SAP BW data source:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/power-bi/service-gateway-sso-kerberos#supported-data-sources

 

I simply can't wrap my head around all the different steps required and how to complete them.

So has anyone succeeded in actually setting up SSO using this guide?

If yes, does the setup then allow for the viewer of the report to be authenticated by SAP BW?

 

If you can point to any further resources on how to complete the setup that would be much obliged as well!

@Mholsen,

What error message do you get? With SSO configured, the user’s data access permissions in SAP will apply, which may produce different results for different users in Power BI Report. Just as your post, it allows for the viewer of the report to be authenticated by SAP BW.

In addition, you can follow the guide in this whitepaper to set up an SSO  gateway connection using Kerberos. Please note that Power BI service currently does not support the use of CommonCryptoLib (i.e. sapcrypto.dll) as a SNC library when configuring a SSO connection, only gsskrb5 is supported.

Thanks, I will see if the whitepaper provides more clarity.

I went through the whitepaper and it doesn't help me with the setup.

So I will have to wait for the guide to be updated or for a video to get released.

I'm hopeful since it looks like this is in high demand right now.
