Disadvantages registering Power BI for API

Hello everyone!

I am working within a Power BI Pro-environment as a Non-PBI-Admin.

Now I would like to start working with the API and our PBI workspace.

But before I will register for this workspace, are there any disadvantages?

Will something change for our users/ consumers?
