Hey,

 

something similar can be achieved by publishing a data model to the Power BI Service, as far as I understand this publishing should happen without any reports.

 

After the model is published to a certain workspace, the users can connect from Power BI Desktop to the data model in the service. It doesn't matter if the data model is also hosting the data, or the data model is connected via live connection or direct query to on-premises data sources.

 

The requirement is, the user must have access to the workspace where the data model has been published to, this is due to the fact, that Power BI doesn't support shared datasets (meaning shared between workspaces):

 

Connect from Power BI Desktop to a data model in the Power BI Service:

Hope this is what you are looking for
