Connect to SAP BW with single-sign-on via on-premise gateway

Large SAP BW installations with thousands of users are often accessed via single-sign-on (SSO) e.g. the users windows credentials are used to authenticate to BW. SSO simplifies the user experience and reduces user administration costs. These users should be able to setup on-premise gateway connections that can be used to refresh data sets in the Power BI Service. The connections should leverage that individuals BW roles & authorizations and not require a BW password i.e. automatically associate the Power BI user ID to the associated SAP user ID.

Great idea!. Actually this point is a showstopper for further deploying Power BI at our company.

Single sign on helps us to be logged in and use the application as and when required without exiting. No issues of session expiry and saves time.

This comes also in line with my other forum topic which also doesn't have a solution yet
