Add a service principal to the server administrator role
To automate unattended PowerShell tasks, a service principal must have server administrator privileges on the Analysis Services server being managed. This article describes how to add a service principal to the server administrators role on an Azure AS server.
Before you begin
Before completing this task, you must have a service principal registered in Azure Active Directory.
To complete this task, you must have server administrator permissions on the Azure AS server.
Add service principal to server administrators role
In SSMS, connect to your Azure AS server.
In Server Properties > Security, click Add.
In Select a User or Group, search for your registered app by name, select, and then click Add.
Verify the service principal account ID, and then click OK.
For server operations using Azure PowerShell cmdlets, service principal running scheduler must also belong to the Owner role for the resource in Azure Role-Based Access Control (RBAC).
