Is it absolutely required to have/purchase capacity for "Users owns data"?

Is it absolutely required to have/purchase capacity for "Users owns data" (Embed for your Organization) or will using Pro/PPU individual license suffice?

If one has a custom application and uses the "Masteruser" approach for embedding PBI reports inside the custom application using a Pro/PPU licensee for the Masteruser - Is it also required to have the workspace to be assigned to a paid capacity (A/EM SKU)? Or would the Pro/PPU Masteruser license be the only license required for "User owns Data" Embedding?

Hi @cyclist007 ,

 

Unless you want to use some Premium features, there is no need to purchase additional.

Yeah we have Pro licenses for both the authors and consumers (end-users).
Is still a capacity based A or EM SKU needed?

If the author & consumers have a PPU license (or are upgraded to PPU) - what Premium features would they be missing out on by not having a A or EM capacity associated with the workspace where the reports are hosted?

Hi @cyclist007 ,

 

If you want to have the power to create reports and applications and share them with others, then you need to purchase a PPU or PRO license. But your shared objects must also have a PRO/PPU license to interact with you properly.

However, if you host your workspace on Premium capacity, then your shared objects do not need a PRO/PPU to view your shared content.

Premium and Pro licenses do not work together, even if you have Premium, you need to purchase a PPU/PRO license if you want to create reports.

PPU/PRO is a user-based license.
Premium is a capacity-based license.
