Putting a Power BI File on SharePoint

I created a report using Power BI Desktop and have been showinig my work to the clients directly from my machine.  Now, they want to make my work available to the group, but wiht some limitations:


  1. I can't publish to because the data is confidential and they don't want it "in the cloud."
  2. None of the clients have Power BI Desktop.
  3. They prefer I put my work on SharePoint.


I could just upload the .pbix file, but then they would need Power BI Desktop to use the file.  I've done some research, but I haven't found any other options.


So, what should I do?  What are my options?

Hi @imani_tech,


According to your description above, using Power BI Report Server may be the possible solution in your scenario. Smiley Happy

Power BI Report Server is a solution that customers deploy on their own premises for creating, publishing, and managing reports, then delivering them to the right users in different ways, whether that’s viewing them in web browser, on their mobile device, or as an email in their in-box.
