I am new in power bi. I would like to know about On Premise Power bi report  requirments. I have sql server 2017 Enterprise version and i want one user for publishing and n number of user for view (Consume) reports.


As per my finding,


  1. Power bi report server is included in sql server 2017 Enterprise version.
  2. For publishing reports in power Bi report server we need power bi services So We need 1 power bi pro licence.

Please Suggest.

If you have SQL Enterprise with software assurance then yes PBIRS is included with that. You do not need any additional licensing to upload reports to that report server.
