Re: May 3 announcement FAQ

What about if I've used "publish to web" to share content (i.e. embedded the report in a webpage). What's the impact on how this now works for both free and pro licenced users?

Re: May 3 announcement FAQ

Hi @kbl1726,

 

We will be introducing additional SKUs for Power BI Premium that target embedded scenarios. While we aren’t disclosing details at this time, our approach is to add further pricing flexibility for embedded scenarios based on the needs of organizations building apps and their customers consuming them. Also, since recipients consuming content embedded in apps are licensed within Power BI Premium, they wouldn’t need to be licensed individually per user.

Hey @joshmwolff,

 

Users of the free Power BI service will continue to have the ability to use Publish to Web. That means that any reports and embedded codes will still work.

Re: May 3 announcement FAQ

Hi again @kbl1726,

 

Beginning June 1 users consuming shared content will need a Power BI Pro license, or they can be licensed by capacity as part of Power BI Premium when it becomes available late this quarter. 
 
The existing Power BI Embedded service will continue to be available for at least 12 months, and you can read more here.

Re: May 3 announcement FAQ

How will these changes impact the incoming "embed to sharepoint" (using the PowerBI Webpart)?

Re: May 3 announcement FAQ

Good question @mlgrannell and no pedantic sound at all. For Power BI Service purposes (what some users call Power BI "web"), both actions carry the same sharing meaning: you can share from the service sending an invite or you can send the URL, which requires the author adding the user to the shared with users list anyways. If not, even with the URL, users won't be able to access the report or dashboard.

 

Another case is Publish to Web, which allows you to share a URL or embed the report in a website, with the caveat that it is public and you have no security.

Hey @SourceToShare,

 

Publishing Power BI reports on-premises with Power BI Report Server requires a Power BI Pro license. Additional per user licenses are not required to consume Power BI reports hosted on Power BI Report Server. You can find more information here

What about the embedded PBI webpart in Sharepoint 'new experience' pages? In the current preview release, all consumers of the page need Pro licenses. Will this feature be Free starting June 1 or still Pro?
