Service principal with Power BI and Data Gateway
Currently the Service principal account cannot leverage the On-Premises Data Gateway since it is not a mail-enabled account. This prevents a Power BI Embedded solution to leverage an on-premises SSAS tabular model leveraging the service principal. Instead we need a full-blown power BI pro license for a service account. I would like the capability to leverage the data gateway added to the service principal Power BI authentication.
The spn access for gateway alone is in public preview
+ 1 we need it

It is much needed when we automation everything using the SPN, since most of our reports using the gateway using the SPN it's currently not possible. Please add this capability
