Re: Power BI Report web part for SharePoint Online Discussion

We need for it to work only for selected first release users, we cant have the entire org on first release.

I should have clarrified that we are not using  sharepoint.com cloud accounts, but rather  enterprise logins with a  shib based single sign on.  So the only way to activiate that tenant level APIs in First release  is by having all users on the tenant (even those that  don't need the new web part) on  First Release?  Please explain how that works.. is it automatic?

@o365spo your Office 365 First Release setting needs to be in "First release for everyone".  Per user first release is not sufficient.

Re: Power BI Report web part for SharePoint Online Discussion

@mahimabedi (and others) there's no current plan to deliver this to First Release for select users. There are big technical dependencies today that prevent us taking that step, as much as we'd really like to. I appreciate all the feedback on it and interest to use the feature. For those who cannot configure First Release for Everyone, rest assured we're working as quickly as possible to get everything in place to light this up for any SharePoint user.

Re: Power BI Report web part for SharePoint Online Discussion

Our organization is a governmental research agency and  we use Sharepoint Online to collaborate with dozens of other state and federal agencies, municipalities and other academic institutions.  Some of the datasets are large and SPO requires using Power BI for Excel workbooks that exceed 10MB.*   We had really hoped the new Web Part would help with our integration issues, but it is a step backwards as it requires a monthly license to even view the content on Sharepoint.

 

It was a big enough hurdle to collaboration that the our in-house researchers had to sign up for a free license just to continue with their SPO collaboration. To take it a step further and require a Power BI license for viewing the data from a Web Part in SPO is a non-starter.   We have no control over whether the viewers can purchase a pro license as we use Sharepoint Online to collaborate with dozens of other state and federal agencies, municipalities and other academic institutions.  And these datasets cannot be share to the world so the anonymous web share option is out. 

 

Somebody let me know if I am missing something. At this point, it seems the PowerBI team is undercutting the collaborative features that Sharepoint has at its core and is marketed upon.

Re: Power BI Report web part for SharePoint Online Discussion

@webguy It's a good ask to make it easier to share content across organizations. We're tracking this with the following idea: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/17485666-azure-b2b-collaboration-...

 

If your organization has on Office 365 E5 license, internally your users already have the required Power BI Pro license to use the web part.
