I have exactly the same problem here, but the solution did not help me.
I have a premium per user capacity but it does not let me send reports as pdf. I looked and all permissions should allow me to send to anyone. When my users go into the report they can export. So there should be no reason that an email doesn't work. Really confusing - any help would be appreciated!
Premium Per User license supports Full attachment as PDF or PPTX. Have you ever try these steps?
1 Deploy the workspace to Premium capacity
2 Check whether the restrictions mentioned in the previous case is violated and Remove some unnecessary visuals, here is a example you can refer:
Remove visulas uncessary to reduce the size of the pbix and then full attachment as can be used.
Is that the answer you are searching for? If this post helps, then please consider Accept it as the solution to help the other members find it more quickly.
Hi @bkxn226 ,
I don't think you can send PDF subscriptions even with Premium per user. The solution of community link you have provided is about exporting to PDF which is a different not the same as sending PDF attachments with subsctiptions.
As per my knowledge, you can send PDF subscriptions only using features of Power BI Report Builder + Premium or Embedded License.
There's a picture of it working here
"As we’re previously stated, someone with a Premium per user license may subscribe anyone in their tenant who has a Power BI Pro license to a subscription that includes the full report attachment. "
Thanks for the responses. Would be great if someone from Microsoft could confirm. Weird to me that they'd write a blog post about it and mention it.
