Sharing externally with Premium-per-user license

Have a question about report sharing abilities with the premium-per-user licensing.

 

I've read some conflicting information, but basically my question is whether it's possible to share Power BI reports with external users when I only have a premium-per-user license - but not a premium capacity. I have all the options to share enabled, and when I go to share a report and enter the email address of an external user it says it was shared successfully - but the user never receives an email to access the report.

 

I am essentially a single person operation so buying a capacity does not make sense for me so i'm trying to figure out the easiest way I can create reports and share them via sharepoint/embed them into a website.

The answer is no, you need Capacity for external users of your reports

Unless you want to share your report via a Public URL (no sensitive data) then no need for the Capacity
