How can I prevent my existing users from starting to use Power BI

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-admin-faq

 

How can I prevent my existing users from starting to use Power BI?

The Azure AD setting that controls this is AllowAdHocSubscriptions. Most tenants have this set to true, which means it's enabled. If you acquired Power BI through a partner, this may be set to false, which means it's disabled.

Use the following PowerShell script to disable ad hoc subscriptions. (Learn more about PowerShell.)

  1. Sign into Azure Active Directory using your Office 365 credentials. The first line of the following PowerShell script prompts you for your credentials. The second line connects to Azure Active Directory.

    PowerShellCopy
     $msolcred = get-credential
     connect-msolservice -credential $msolcred

  2. Once you sign in, run the following command to see how your tenant is currently set up.

    PowerShellCopy
     Get-MsolCompanyInformation | fl AllowAdHocSubscriptions
  3. Run the following command to enable ($true) or disable ($false) AllowAdHocSubscriptions.

    PowerShellCopy
     Set-MsolCompanySettings -AllowAdHocSubscriptions $false
    

 Note

Use the AllowAdHocSubscriptions flag to control several user capabilities in your organization, including the ability for users to sign up for the Azure Rights Management Service. Changing this flag affects all of these capabilities.

Hi there

Sorry for missing that!

I guess you could also block the installation of power BI desktop?
