Cannot display the contents of a dashboard with viewer permission

Hello,
We recently had the good news to share workspaces content with users who do not have a PRO license with the permission of viewers.

In the deploy of some workspaces, we see that only PRO users can see their content (but all can enter the dashboards).

The No PRO users goes blank.
Is there any configuration to solve this? Or is it simply resolved by paying for more PRO licenses?

Re: Cannot display the contents of a dashboard with viewer permission

Hi there

To share any reports or dashboards with users you either need to have a Power BI Pro license.

Or you need to have your App Workspace running in Power BI Premium

Thanks for the reply @GilbertQ 

 

Yes, al the workspaces are running in Power BI Premium.

However, I can only see the contents of a dashboard by assigning a pro license or changing the permission to any other than a viewer.

We use Power BI Embedded capacity.

Re: Cannot display the contents of a dashboard with viewer permission

Hi there

When you say you are using Power BI Embedded, is it the Power BI Embedded SKU or the Power BI A (Azure) SKU

I do recall that for either of them you would need to get the dashboard details via an API call?

Correct, I have web developments with power bi embedded, but the need is at the Power BI Services level, I don't see it practical to create another solution to visualize what was created by dozens of users.

Re: Cannot display the contents of a dashboard with viewer permission

Hi there

I do agree that it should work.

Does the user who you share or use have the right permissions to the dashboard?

Re: Cannot display the contents of a dashboard with viewer permission

Hello,

With the viewer profile. Cant see the dashboard content.

With any other profile, need PRO.

With any other profile, and a PRO licence.

I hope to be wrong: for me the contents of a dashboard with the viewer permission will not be displayed. What would be the objective of being able to enter something that cannot be seen?

Re: Cannot display the contents of a dashboard with viewer permission

Hi there

When a user needs access to an App Workspace even if they are using the Viewer Role they will need a Power BI Pro license.

Free Power BI users can only access reports via an App. And you could create the dashboards within your App?

I have a Workspace App running on Power BI Premium, but viewer users cannot see the "dashboards."
Can you relicate this scenario? I think you only answer me about the documentation (which is wrong)
