Migrating from SSRS to Power BI Embedded instead of Premium

Is it possible to use Power BI Embedded instead of Power BI Premium or Power BI Premium Per User to host our old RDL reports?  If so can we only see the reports embedded in a website? Would the authentication workflow be the same for each?  Would it just not work for Power BI Embedded?


My question is all about saving money.  I'm moving an on prem 2016 SSRS server to an Azure VM.  During the process of researching how to do this I ran across the possibility of hosting RDL files on Power BI, but only premium or premium per user.  We currently are using Power BI Pro as that price point is much more doable.  However I do have the budget to spin up a Power BI Embedded workspace, so with that being the case, it could make sense to deploy the old RDL reports to the Power BI Embedded workspace.

Hi @jborn ,


According to your description, hosting and running rdl reports in powerbi requires a Power BI Premium subscription, so you need to purchase the appropriate license.


For more details, you can read below document:

If the problem is still not resolved, please provide detailed error information and let me know immediately. Looking forward to your reply.
