Power BI Premium Capacity - is sharing between two tenants possible?

Hi, we have been recently advised [by MS support] to go to premium capacity. The main motivation is that our pbix grew over 1GB of data.

The price is a factor so our first choice would be to try to reuse an existing premium capacity that our colleagues from another part of the [same] organisation already use. The question is: is it a problem that we are in a different tenant? Or rather: is it possible for us to attach to our workspaces the existing premium capacity from another tenant?

I tried on-line but couldn't find this scenario described anywhere. If someone could speak from experience or even direct me to an existing resource, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi @pkd 

From your statement, I know here are two tenants, tenant1 has premium license and tenant2 doesn't.

Power BI Premium is a tenant-level Microsoft 365 subscription.

It doesn't support you to assign premium capacity in other tenant (tenant1)to the workspace in your tenant(tenant2).

However you can ask users in tenant1 to add your account in tenant2 as a guest user.

Guest users only require invitations the first time you invite them to your organization. To invite users, use planned or ad hoc invites.

For more details about how to invite a guest user, you may refer to this blog.

Then add you as a member in the workspace which is in Premium capacity in tenant1. 

Then users in tenant1 can share a tenant url to you. You can use the workspace in Premium capacity in tenant1 by this tenant url.

You can find tenant url in about Power BI in "?" icon.

You can share to users outside of your tenant but they need to have a Pro license, regardless if they are in their own Premium tenant or not.
