Re: @Re: Power BI Cloud Login without Office365

@HabibThis admin guide should answer a lot of these questions. You don't really have a choice here, if you sign up for the Power BI service, you are essentially registering the domain of the company. Azure AD is set up to support the online users. If you need to keep the Azure AD and on premises AD synced there are multiple options for that. If they can't sign up, then I would imagine that someone has already registered the domain of the company...

Some more details around that here

Re: Power BI Cloud Login without Office365

Hi @Habib,

 

Based on my research, we are not able to use the local AD account to sign up the Power BI Service. Power BI requires a work, or school, email address to sign up. Power BI does not support email addresses provided by consumer email services or telecommunication providers. See: Self-service sign up for Power BI.

Thanks @v-qiuyu-msft for the response.

 

we are not using any consumer email. Our customer has local AD configured and now they want to use Power BI cloud service. As they don't have Azure AD account they are unable to create login on PowerBI.com.

 

Can you please help in this regard.

@Seth_C_BauerThanks for your reply.

 

I am confused on one thing if you could please help. Microsoft is offering Pro license in $10/Month/User but if we don't have any Office 365 license then this license cost will be increased including the $ amount for Office 365. Is this true asumption?

Re: @Re: Power BI Cloud Login without Office365

@Habib If I understand your question correctly, you want to know "if" at a future date you get the O365 license if you would be paying 2x for the Pro license?

The only O365 license that includes the Power BI subscription is the E5 license. If there was a move at a future date and you would want upgrade to the license, I would imagine you could reach out to your local MS sales rep at that time to absorb the cost. Or, if that time comes, I "believe" you could just remove the Power BI stand alone license and the new E5 license applied would keep the Pro license active.
