New Whitepaper - Flowing Identity in the Microsoft BI Stack using Claims

19. June 2014

I recently published along with colleagues Jared Zagelbaum and Greg Moser a white paper that should be of help to anyone that wants to use the Microsoft BI Stack (including SQL Server Analysis Services) when using Claims-based authentication systems like ADFS. As SQL Server Analysis Services does not currently support Claims, we have put together a solution to bridge the gap to provide the ability to utilize PowerView, PowerPivot and Excel Services when users are registered in ADFS and not in a traditional Windows domain.  The solution uses a new capability in Windows Server 2012 R2 called the Web Application Proxy which has the ability to convert ADFS claims to windows tokens.
