This enables Power BI Embedded to respect security settings that are configured at the data source level. Power BI Embedded has no awareness of the application’s user. For applications that want to set row-level security in Azure SQL Database, there is a need to pass the application’s user information to SQL Database. By enabling the single sign-on option, Power BI Embedded sends authenticated Azure Active Directory credentials for users accessing reports in the queries to the Azure SQL Database.
