I brought in data from an Azure SQL database and it worked great.  I created a dashboard (I'm a Pro user), but when I went to share it with a non-Pro user it says I can't since it contains Pro only content due to the data source being Azure SQL.  Am I understanding this correctly that anyone that wants to view/use the dashboard I created they need to be a Pro user?  This is a deal killer for our company.

I hope this is on topic. I follwed the above advice and imported my tables from Azure. But in my case I only want to import a subset as the result of a query I wrote.

How do I import the query results rather than the whole table?

Thanks, Mark.

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

Connecting to Azure SQL from the online service is considered "live" connection and it refreshes on query..So everyone you share needs to be a Pro user..The other option is to import the data in PBI desktop and the upload it to PowerBI service..Of cource the connection is not live, meaning you can schedule only a daily refresh..( with the limitation that you cannot schedule it as a pro user for now )..
