Power BI premium per user

Hi Team,


We have a Power BI PPU trail account. We have built a report and published it to the PPU dedicated workspace; also created a flow in Power Automate to automate the export of the report in a PDF format. While doing so we are facing the following error:


Can you please guide us further on this.


Thanks in advance,

Soumya Vinod.

hello, can someone give a clear answer to this problem, that it is the power bi license level sufficient to export the report to a file with power automate?

Hello @baghdad 

The answer is clearly No.

You cannot export a PowerBi report, with PPU Licence using Power Automate.

The only reports you can export with Power Automate are Paginated Reports.



I think it is not, by design.

Please check this MS documentation with the list of limitations, including:

@Syndicate_Admin  I have the same exact issue, and if the PPU is not doing such a simple task, that won't force me by anyway to even try PPC, I am in the PPU trial, but surely will not upgrade 😞

I get the same eror as you and I tnink it is simply because the PowerBi features are not available with a PPU Licence, but only with a Per Capacity Premium Licence (the full and expensive one .. :-))

From my point of view, and because of this lack, the PPU licence is in fact not interesting, unless you want to use paginated reports.

Hm, exact same over here. Did you find a solution for it, @Syndicate_Admin ?
