The small team I am in run the CRM system for the company. Its an MVC web app on an intranet. While we are a small team (2 devs and a BA/Tester) the application is quite large and holds a lot of data. We are looking to upgradge our reporting by embedding PowerBI into some of the pages inthe app.
The tech part we have followed and got somewhere but there still seems to be some confusion surrounding pricing. The company has 400 Pro licences but it seems we need some capacity to back the embedded part of things. So we have got on the A1 sku. This says up to 300 refeshes per hour.
1) What is the difference between NOT having capacity and HAVING some for embedding in a company intranet, wil it still work?
2) Now that we have the A1 sku what is the implication if we go over 300 refeshes per hour. Right now we have no idea just how many reports we will produce and how ofte they will be refreshed. (Over 300 does it stop working or ddoes performance drop)
Anything you can tell me about these issues would be good.
For Power BI Embedding to work you need to provision capacity as you have done. My understanding is that the A1 SKU is sized for about 300 refreshes per hour maximum and you may experience performance degradation above that number and want to scale to a larger SKU.

1. There are two scenarios of Embedding. One considers the capacity as a must while the other considers it as a plus. I think the developer/embed-sample-for-your-organization suits your scenario better.
2. The Power BI Embedded capacity is flexible. You can scale up or scale down easily. You even can pause it. Please refer to power-bi/developer/azure-pbie-pause-start.
The Embedded for customers requires a capacity when moving to Production. Please refer to embed-sample-for-customers#move-to-production. In this scenario, there is only one Pro Power BI account as a master account.
The end users will log in with their own Power BI account in the other scenario that is Embedded for your organization.
Could you please mark the proper answers as solutions?
