Embedding PowerBI onto a Website

Hi there!


I am looking to embed a PowerBi report onto my website for external visitors to view. 

I have the following questions, if anyone could help i would be most appreciative!


  1. If any, how much of the underlying data will be visible when publishing on the web using a free/pro license? 
  2. Is user access to the data to the extent of what is shown on the dashboard or is there an ability for users to download the original data.
  3. What are the risks of sharing those dashboards, via the iFrame code?
  4. If we’re publishing to a private site requiring log in credentials to access the site, what do I need to consider regarding the security of the underlying data in this case.
  5. What authority does Microsoft have on dashboards published using free license? Please advise with respect to underlying data as well as overall right to the final product I.e dashboard.
  6. Would it be possible to host 5-10 years worth of real estate data on Azure as a daily/weekly/monthly data dump from our MLS® System? 
  7. How much will the Power BI Cloud Service cost monthly for paid dashboarding? Does this service require the data to be residing in the cloud or can the data be stored locally?

8. What are the major differences between Power BI Cloud vs. Reporting Server offerings?
