Functionality to add AD-groups in On-Prem Data Gateway

Hello,

 

It's not possible to add AD-groups to data sources in the on-premise data gateway today. This is applied under the 'Users'-tab. This means adding users individually. It is possible to add O365 security groups but not AD-security groups. Is this expected behaviour or something MS plans to implement?

 

We have implemented a tabular model with row based security and we are using one AD-group per role. It's a live connection in Power BI. We would like to use the same users in our AD-groups without having to add each user individually. 

 

Best regards,

O

Hi @OmarSaka,

 

Based on my test, if we create a mail-enabled security group synced with Active Directory, we can add it under data source Users tab. See:

In your scenario, please check if this group has Email address. If not, can you share more information or screenshots about it for our analysis?

Hello @v-qiuyu-msft!

 

Sorry for late answer. I hadn't tought about syncing the on prem AD-group with the O365 mail group. Thank you! Going to test this now and I'll be back. 

 

Edit: Thank you. It worked. The answer was a bit unclear in this thread; https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/9867741-active-directory-security...
