How to login from external tools with SSO?

We have Single Sign-On (SSO) turned on for our Incorta environments, but we also plan on connecting externally with tools like Power BI.  

Problem is, with SSO for the UI enabled we need separate logins for connecting externally.  We can't setup a 2nd login for an individual because their work email was already used by the SSO setup, and you can't have two of the same email.

Currently we're using a shared ID and password, but sharing passwords obviously isn't ideal.

Does anyone know of a good solution to this issue?

  • Hi Mike,

    Is developing Power BI Reports using Power BI Service an option?

    In that case you can publish Incorta data sources  to Power BI Service and  user can sign in to Power BI Service using SSO and develop reports using Power BI service by using Incorta data source.

  • Hi Anurag, Using Power BI via the cloud (is that Power BI Service) is something we have the option to do.  However, most of our users connect via the desktop and our database connection tool (DBeaver) doesn't have SSO functionality.  Right now we plan on creating a few generic IDs for people to use, but I was curious if anyone knew of different options.
