Power BI RS licensing

Hi,

 

I need to do a dashboard for a customer and i'd like to use Power BI.

The customer have SQL server 2014 so i have SQL Server reporting service.

 

So can i use power bi with this or am i blocked SSRS ? bacause i saw that the Power Bi report server needs a prenium account, and i don't have one.

The dashboard needs to be hosted locally so i don't need the cloud.

 

I'm quite lost with all these licenses to be honest and a little help would be welcome.

 

Regards,

Adrien

Re: Power BI RS licensing

You need Power BI Premium or SQL Server with Software Assurance to have Power BI report Server on premise License.

 

 

Please check this link on how to find key using Software assurance option here

Re: Power BI RS licensing

Thank you ! 

 

Last question, in this article : https://docs.microsoft.com/fr-fr/sql/reporting-services/what-s-new-in-sql-server-reporting-services-...  (click "lire en anglais" if it's in french)

Microsoft says that  the reporting services can now open Power BI Desktop files, does it means that we can open BI reports throught the web like we would with Power BI Report Server ? If yes it would be perfect for me
