Power BI Premium - Subscribe Others to email for RLS/live connection reports/dashboards

Hi All,

 

Based on my reading so far on power bi forums/power bi documentation, my understanding is report developer can not subscribe other users to reports/dashboards created with RLS/live connections for power bi pro license.

 

But what I am not clear on is - if we upgrade to power BI premium, will it allow me as report developer to subscribe other users to reports/dashboards created with RLS/live connections ? If yes, will that subscription needs to be also created page by page or can we create just one subscription and power bi can send one email with PPT/excel/PDF for all the tabs in report? 

 

Thank you for your help,

 

Regards,

Nilima

@nilimarodrigues - Yes even if you have Premium subscription, you won't be able to do so.

For report email subscriptions, if the dataset uses RLS, you can create a subscription for yourself. You can't subscribe others to a report with row-level security (RLS) applied, except for paginated reports. You can subscribe others to a paginated report, using your security context.

@NikhilKumar  - So even if I have Power BI premium, it wouldnt let me subscribe other users if report/dashboard has RLS/live connection?

 

This is a very basic requirement. In any organization, for executives, you wouldnt want to ask them to subscribe on each of these reports/dashboards. How are you/others are handling this issue?
