Sharing dashboards with external users - Can I create accounts for them?

Hello,

 

i would like to share my dashboards with external users. As far as I have seen from the documentations, this is only possible if I have a pro license and also the external users, correct? 

Assuming this is correct, can I set up accounts for the external users (about 5 accounts), configurate everything for them and pay for them for 2 month and then terminate the subscriptions? I want to avoid the hassle for the external users to create accounts themselves. I would rather prefer to just send them login data and then they have direct access to my dashboard. Is this possible or is there a better way to share dashboards with external users?

 

 

Best,

Daniel

@h0hesc Yes you are correct, you need a Pro license for all. Yes, you can purchase one for them, but I believe the Pro license is a yearly subscription. Depending on your environment you could set up B2B, or as you describe create seperate accounts in your tenant. Check out this video by Adam Saxton to learn about B2B -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxQWEQ1NnlY
