Licensing

Hi, Dear.

What license do I need to purchase to provide cloud dashboards to all my Microsoft 365 users in reading mode? Do I need the Server license?
Do all users need a Power BI license for this view permission?
The number of users who initially need edit access to the Power BI Dashboard is 3.

Thanks!

Hi @afaf 

With a small number of users like this it is probably most cost-effective to purchase them all "Pro" licences.

If a "Pro" licence shares any content in the Power BI cloud other users need a "Pro" licence to view it.

"Free" Power BI licences can only view content shared with them on a "Premium Capacity", that works well for a large number of users (>500) but for smaller populations of users individual Power BI "Pro" licences are more cost-effective.

Hope this helps

Hi, @Burningsuit 

 

I can use a single PPU (Premium per User) license for sharing Power BI Dashboard with 50 users from my organization's using the free license.

Is this possible?

No, PPU does not allow access by free users, only a Premium Capacity organisational licence does that.

hope this helps
