Hi Guys,

I have few power BI reports running under power bi report server, I would like embed them into angular application. This should not ask for credentials and this should not require user to be part AD group.

Kind regards

    Service Accounts? Pretty sure you will at least need an AD account on the back end.

    Have a look here and see if this fits the bill?

    @Jailani Makanadar
    Thank you for your post!

    When it comes to embedding a Power BI report into an Angular Application, you should be able to do this by leveraging the powerbi-client-angular GitHub repo. For your specific issue of not wanting the app to ask for credentials or requiring users to be part of an AD group, I don't believe this is possible. Based off the Embed a Power BI report section, it looks like passing an accessToken is part of the configuration, and this token should be used to perform authentication/authorization to ensure the user trying to view your report has the correct permissions.

    Since Power BI isn't supported here on Q&A, I'd recommend reaching out to their experts within the Microsoft Power BI Community.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.
    Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.
