PowerBI REST API License/Azure - Help

Hello everyone,

 

I have some questions regarding the REST API, I hope that you guys can help me (I'm a little confused).

I have a PowerBI account (PRO / pay) and let's go there:

 

- Do I need to sign up for Azure to use the REST API?
- Do I need to pay Azure to use the PowerBI REST API (in this case would it be PowerBI PRO + Azure)?
- Can I reassemble my dashboard (like on the web) using REST API?
- How does this work (basically) a mix of REST API with embed / iframe?

 

The only thing that worried me a lot was the costs, today our company use some PowerBI accounts for each organization and as we do not have "form authentication" as in SSRS the best solution would be the REST API (if there are no additional costs)

- Do I need to sign up for Azure to use the REST API?

No, register an app with Azure AD is free, I follow the tutorial without any charge on Azure.


- Do I need to pay Azure to use the PowerBI REST API (in this case would it be PowerBI PRO + Azure)?

You only pay for pro license.


- Can I reassemble my dashboard (like on the web) using REST API?

What do you mean reassemble. Power BI REST API now supports embbeding a dashboard in your web application.


- How does this work (basically) a mix of REST API with embed / iframe?

Check this tutorial and the samples in Github.
