How to share power bi reports in website without pro accounts?

I want to share power bi reports in our MVC website. There is two ways that I have found:

1. Using the iframe link that is generated but this doesn't feel secure as anyone else could access that. 

2. Using Power BI embedded but this requires everyone viewing the report to have a Pro BI account. 

 

Is there a third way to achieve this? I am not fan of number 1 and 2 is not within budget. 

I'm new to this so do let me know if this question isn't in right space

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

There are two approaches to embedded your report in website.

 

1. Embed for you customers.  customer don't need to have a pro license.  Your web app uses the Azure AD service principal object  or master user to authenticate against Azure AD and get an app-only Azure AD token. This is an app-only authentication method, which is recommended by Azure AD.

 

2. Embed for your organization.

 

Your users authenticate against Azure AD using their Power BI credentials. Users need to grant consent to the API permissions that were set when registering the app with Azure AD.

 

For more details, please refer to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/embedded/embed-tokens
