Power BI Pro and Exchange license

Hi Community,

A user who wants to create and share reports and dashboards would he need an exchange or any other O365 license besides the Power BI Pro license ?

 

Thank you in advance.

Thank you @Greg_Deckler 

So we can purshase just the power bi license without any extra license if we want to create and share reports

Yes. I have known customers that only had Power BI deployed in their organization. Nothing else. If done like this where Power BI is your first Office 365 product it actually creates a "shadow" tenant behind the scenes for Office 365. Those can be a pain to work with and convert honestly. I would suggest signing up for Office 365 some free trial. Purchase your Power BI licenses in this tenant. Don't renew your trial licenses. Better way to go about it.

 

We are a direct CSP provider so we help people with this kind of thing all the time.
