License

Hello, in my workplace we have two Pro License to make reports and dashboards. Currently we have nearly 10 users that will only look up the reports or dashboards and won't make any changes, which kind of license should be required, should i take the free license or maybe the "publish to web" option, for the "reader users"? thanks for your help.

Re: License

Hi there The best option is to purchase an additional Power BI Pro license. This will allow you to share your dashboards and reports with other users, as well as allow them to use the Power BI mobile app and Analyze in Excel options. If you go the publish to web option (which is not recommended) you data can be viewed by anyone who gets that link. As well as potentially search engines can index it and show your data via searches. For the Free license option, you would have to have your data on the Power BI Premium and share it via an App

Re: License

Hi @carloscabreraq,

 

AFAIK, if you share contents with 'publish to web' feature it not require license to view it.(it not allow any security setting on it)

Publish to web from Power BI

 

For other share features they all require pro license(both send and receiver).

Share your Power BI dashboards and reports with coworkers and others
