Is there way to use a dashboard which using BI Web Services on desktop and use it without entering Logon details except embedding a service account in it? SSO with Win AD already setted and users doesnt entering their logon credentials to use BI Launch Pad.

Thanks in Advance

    Yes, using AD to connect to a BI Service is possible. When you create the BI Service in the Webi rich client, are you setting the authentication type there as AD?
