Change the on-premises data gateway service account

By default, The on-premises data gateway is configured to use NT SERVICE\PBIEgwService for the Windows service sign-in credential.

For these organizations it may be required to change the on-premises data gateway service Windows service sign-in credential to an AD user with proxy access.

You can change the Service Settings on the Summary page of the gateway installer wizard or by accessing the on-premises data gateway app from the Windows start menu.
