Will the Visio Visual work for other users without a Visio license?

Hi,

 

My question is really simple: 

When I use a Visio Visual in Power BI Desktop and I will upload this report to the cloud so other users could access this report. Can they also see and use this Visio Visual in Power BI without having a Visio license?

@Shaney Yes, licensing requirements for visuals are for the report author, not the end user. End users should have no problems digesting your content if you are the one licensed properly.

@Seth_C_Bauer Will this also work when the report author en the end user both only has a Power BI Pro license and the report author has a Visio license (Without having Office 365)?

I have tested this and the Visio visual works when the report author has the Power BI Pro license registered on his/her name and also the Visio license without having Office 365. As long as the report author gives the end users acces to the Visio drawing that is used in Power BI.
