Re: Did Microsoft change their model, OR relax some restrictions?

Yes I do see that same exact message. 

 

Yes connecting live through a gateway is considered PRO content (which qualifies my dashboard as PRO content as I'm using a direct connection to SSAS)

Re: Did Microsoft change their model, OR relax some restrictions?

That's wierd.  My free account users aren't able to access anything connected to a gateway.

 

Frankly the Power BI deployment strategy has me very confused.  The pricing documentation clearly states free users can schedule a daily refresh 1x / day.  However, the only option to schedule a refresh is through a gateway, which requires a Pro account for anyone to access.  Is this intentionally misleading, or am I missing a third option that lets free users consume scheduled content?

@ZenDataFox This might help a little, but keeping track of every scenerio is ... challenging. There is a scenerio with Excel file not using power query or power pivot on premises that does not require a gateway. In this way, I believe you could use the daily refresh.
