Will the Power BI Analysis Services Connector work if AD and AAD UPN suffixes don't match?

We are using Azure Active Directory, AD FS, and DirSync with
Alternate Login IDs, which means that our on-prem usernames have a different UPN suffix from our AAD usernames.
Will the Power BI Analysis Services Connector work in this setup? Or do the AD and AAD UPN suffixes absolutely have to match?

Hey Adam,
From SSAS, we simply query AD by passing the UPN we receive from AAD. As long as AD can find a match, it'll work.
So if there is a way in AD to map a particular UPN to another value, it'll work.
For example: For a user A, her on premises UPN is
'[email protected]' but she uses '[email protected]' as her email address. From AAD we'll receive
'[email protected]' & since AD knows that this is same as
'[email protected]' effective user name will work.
Hope this clarifies! let me know if you have more questions.
