Free vs Pro licence question

Hello everyone.

I have one question about license details.

Power BI Free allows to publish reports into Power BI service in Office 365. I read somewhere that this reports will be public. They will be public inside organisation (O365) or public generally?

 

 

Thanks in advance,
Nekkoru

Hi @Anonymous 

 

With Publish to web, you can publish Power BI reports to the whole Internet by embedding interactive visualizations in blog posts, web sites, social media, and other online communications on any device. Anyone on the Internet can view your reports, and you have no control over who can see what you've published. They don't need a Power BI license. Publishing to the web is available only for reports that you can edit. You can't publish reports to the web if they're shared with you or if they're in an app. More about publishing to the web.

 Warning

Use Publish to web only to share content publicly, not for internal sharing.

Publish to web - If you dont have sensitive data and need to share entire public then refer it.

Hi Nekkoru,

 

If you publish reports to the web, they are visible to anyone. So not just within your company/organisation. So if you choose to do so, you should check beforehand if your company allows reports to be published on the web. Also you should make sure there's absolutely no confidential information within the reports.

 

Hope this answers your question.

 

Cheers Eddie
