Serving reporting to 3rd parties - Content Packs...

We are looking into using PowerBI to create reports for 3rd parties that use our software as a service, what is the best way to distribute these reports?

 

I have seen that there are Content Packs but these appear to be geared towards organisations and Pro users only. Are there any alternative support processes / lifecylces for sharing and updating reporting with read-only type consumers?

 

Cheers,

 

Dan

Re: Serving reporting to 3rd parties - Content Packs...

@DanielClark There are few approaches you can take.

 

1. Get developer AD account created under your client domain and use that to perform power bi development for your client and publish to their power bi portal.

 

2. Use Power BI Embedded which is Azure service that lets you embed power bi reports into your web application so others can view them without needing power bi account. Check out more details here.

 

3. Use Publish to Web feature that makes your report available to anyone over the internet with the link. This is less secure option as anyone with the link can see the reports.

 

4. You can also share dashboards that are created by the account in your domain with users that are outside your organisation.

Hi @DanielClark,

 

In addition, you can also try to print or save as PDF (or other static file format) an entire dashboard, a dashboard tile, a report page, or a report visual from the Power BI service in some scenario, then share it. Smiley Happy See How should I share Power BI dashboards and reports?
