Embed for Organisation as well as Customers (by capacity, without per-user licensing)

Hi,

 

Our organisation would like to licence powerbi by capacity and embed powerbi reports for both:
* organisational users (with Azure AD accounts in our organisation), and

* some of our customers (no Azure AD accounts, but with private with private access to some web sites and sharepoint sites we have had developed) 

 

Our plan is to securely embed PowerBI reports in sharepoint sites, as well as custom controlled-access web sites we develop, for our own staff as well as for some of our customers. For our staff access is determined through Azure AD, for customers it is controlled through accounts within the websites individually.

* We dont want the headache of manage licensing on a per-user basis,

* nor do we want people to accessing reports directly through PowerBI service.

 

When I look at embedding instructions https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/embedded/embedding it says 

Choose the solution that is right for you:

 

Questions:

 

* I'm confused  by this - do we need to choose both? Or the second?

 

* Does "embed for your organisation" here really mean "for per-user powerbi licensing" ?

 

* Does "embed for your customers" here really mean "for all users (organisation or customers), per-capacity powerbi licensing, without per-user licensing" ?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @intronic ,

 

>>* I'm confused  by this - do we need to choose both? Or the second?

 

I suggest you use the second one only. 

 

>> * Does "embed for your organisation" here really mean "for per-user powerbi licensing" ?

 

Yes, everyone in the organization need to have power bi licensing.  The web app user authenticates against Azure AD using his Power BI credentials

 

>> Does "embed for your customers" here really mean "for all users (organisation or customers), per-capacity powerbi licensing, without per-user licensing" ?

 

Yes, you are right. all users don't need to have power bi license.  Your web app uses a service principal or a master user to authenticate against Azure AD.

 

You can learn more from the https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/embedded/embed-tokens

Hi @intronic 

 

From my understanding it would be to use each one for your requirements. 

 

Internal users would use option 1 and external users use option 2.
