Power BI Report web part for SharePoint Online Discussion
The new Power BI (preview) web part for SharePoint Online is now available globally for Office 365 First Release customers. The web part lets you securely embed Power BI reports from your PowerBI.com account in SharePoint Online pages so you can build secure internal portals easily. The web part requires users configuring the web part and consuming the reports to have Power BI Pro licenses.
Let's use this thread to discuss the new Power BI report web part for SharePoint Online.
Please read the documentation before asking a question, posting a comment below. The documentation contains answers to common questions and workaround for any known issues.
When adding the Power BI (preview) web part, you are asked to sign-in but are not able to.
You will see error message similar to:
"We need you to sign in again. Once you do, we'll bring you back here."
"An error occurred, please try logging out and back in and then revisiting this page"
To resolve this issue, ensure your tenant is set to "First release for everyone". To enable SSO, the Power BI web part relies on new Authentication APIs provided by the SharePoint team and only available when First release for everyone is selected. See the Office 365 documentation for detailed steps
Is the requirement that consumers of the web part have a Power BI Pro license only during the preview or is this going to be a requirement at GA as well? This is a simple question, I need a simple answer.
The web part requires some authentication APIs that SharePoint has enabled only as a Tenant level first release. So this mean users would not be able to log-in to the web part (you saw the login related issues earlier on this thread was due to this very issue).
