Project planning

Hi Community,

We're beginning the process of planning a PowerBI Enterprise wide rollout and have the following questions I'd like some assistance with -

 

* Do all users consuming shared Dashboards, reports and published Apps require a Pro Licence or just the handful of users that will be generating and publishing the reports?

 

* We'll be implenting row level security on some of our shared Dashboards & reports - should we therefore only be considering SQL Server Analysis Services using the On-premise Data Gateway OR if we go down the Premium licencing route and use the imported model can we also implement row level security on our shared Dashboards & reports?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Project planning

Hi @Stuartb113,

 

1. Generally speaking, if you want to sharing something, you need a pro account.

1.1 If you share a dashboard, both the authors and recipients need a pro. powerbi-service-share-unshare-dashboard.Project planning.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1.2 If you use Power BI Premium, readers don't need a Pro. The author who create Apps and share still needs a pro.

>>>Power BI Premium is an add-on to Power BI Pro; therefore Premium requires Pro licenses.

1.3 If you publish the content to web (the internet), no Pro is needed. But this isn't proper for most corporations.

 

2. With App workspace (Premium ), RLS roles only can be applied to read-only members. It works fine with sharing Dashboards except some limitations.

>>>

  • Only ETL, and DirectQuery connections are supported. Live connections to Analysis Services are handled in the on-premises model.

And more, please reference here: powerbi-admin-rls (Limitations.)

 

Best Regards!
