PowerBI Pro license question

Hi,

 

I am using the Power BI Pro version. I have basic a question:

 

I have developed a service dashboard and it uses the on-Premise database using enterprise Gateway connection. Data connectivity mode is Import. I have scheduled a refresh as well.

 

I have shared this dashboard to executive members (PowerBI free users with 60 day trial period). Currently, they are able to view my dashboard and they can able to drill down/up any level and applying some filters as well. Do they require any Power BI PRO license going forward to view my dashboard and use similar features?

 

Regards

Srini

Re: PowerBI Pro license question

If you have scheduled refresh from an on-premises data source, then your report is using Pro features and users should need a Pro license to view it.

Whether your users can view your shared dashboard or not depend on your dashboard content. If it contains Pro content, they will need Pro license to view the data.

I have posted an idea for Power BI to identify what specific content is triggering the "Pro" message.  Seems silly that we have to guess.  Please vote:
