Publish to Web and licensing

I have been playing with datasets on my own time and I would like to publish these reports to the web.

 

I want to understand how I can do this. I know that I will need my own Power BI account (rather than my company's) to do this. I also know that I can create a free account using this method by Guy in a Cube: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZyy_qqRPiU).

 

However, I cannot publish from the web as shown in the video because I dont have access to the Administrator settings in Power BI service.

 

How can I publish my reports this way?

 

I know that I will probably need a company domain at least. Something like companyname.com. Is this accurate? (I'm thinking I can buy something on google domains and then set up email forwarding to my personal email)

 

Will I get administrator access to power bi service if I sign up to the free power bi account this way? And then can i publish to web this way?

 

And do I need a pro license after this?

Hi, @rincewind 

 

If you have registered a personal account through the above method but are not an administrator, You could register in Azure (https://portal.azure.com/#home) to assign yourself to a admin role. And then you can see Admin Portal in Power BI and enable settings.

 

Please follow the steps in the solved thread:

A pro licence is not required to use the publish to web feature.

That actually worked! I went in to the azure portal and was able to set up myself as the power bi administrator.

 

Thanks again
