Power BI Pro without Office 365 account

Hi,

 

I need to know which steps are necessary to buy a Power BI Pro licence without using an Office 365 account.

 

I read several documents but there is no clear and complete guide to how to do it.

 

Can someone explain me which prerequisites are necessary and which steps I need to perform, please?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

G.

HI @gcresta ,

Power bi pro is one subscription of office tenant subscriptions, it not required to purchase additional products.(steps: navigation to admin portal, find out power bi pro license, purchase and assign to specific users)

Prerequisite: you need a office work/organization account.

Hi @gcresta ,

AFAIK, power bi is a office subscription on office tenant side. I don't think it is possible to use power  bi subscription without office account.

For power bi pro license, official purchase method is ask tenant admin to purchase it in official and assign license to your account. You can also try to contact to power bi partners for power bi pro licenses.

Re: Power BI Pro without Office 365 account

Hi @v-shex-msft,

thanks for the reply.

 

In order to buy Power BI Pro licenses it is necessary to buy also an office subscription or it's enough the free one?

 

My need is to know how can I buy Pro licenses without buy also an office 365 subscription.

 

If I became the Admin of the domain in Office can i buy only the Pro Licences? How other steps are necessary?

 

Thanks.
