Allowing external user to publish reports and Update Apps

So, I'm developing a report which I need to be able to publish, as an external user, to multiple Power BI tenants.  I'll also need to be able to create an App Workspace, and publish an App.  Is it possible to do this as an external user if an administrator gives me permissions, or will I need to have a domain account with an assigned Power BI Pro License for each tenant I want to deploy this report to?

 

Thanks!

Re: Allowing external user to publish reports and Update Apps

Hi @mikechittick,

 

Current external users can't publish or update app from app workspace, please refer to below link to know more about these limitations:

Distribute Power BI content to external guest users with Azure AD B2B

Limitations

  • External B2B guests are limited to consumption of content only. External B2B guests can view apps, dashboards, reports, export data and create email subscriptions for dashboards and reports. They can't access workspaces or publish their own content.
  • This feature is not currently available with the Power BI mobile apps. On a mobile device, you can view Power BI content shared using Azure AD B2B in a browser.
  • Using guest users with Power BI is not supported within sovereign clouds (government).

With Azure B2B, will the external user be able to Edit Reports or use the Analyze in Excel function?
