Power BI Premium and SQL Server Edition

If my client has purchased Power BI Premium and will be using Report Server. Does it matter which edition of SQL Server is used as the location of the Report Server's DB? Are there any features we'd miss out on, if I use SQL Standard Edition vs Enterprise Edition?

You could even use the free edition if you wanted. See this thread:

Hi,

We have installed Power BI On-Premise evalution edition to build the infrastrcture and installed SQL Express for that.

 

After purchasing the licenses for Power BI Report Server (P1), we've recieved the following error.Untitled.png

 

 

 

Do we have to upgrade from SQL Express to a higher edition?

Hi,

 

We have the same question and have currently installed the express edition of SQL server. However, since the SQL Server Agent is not supported by Express edition, we have seen that the scheduled refresh feature fails (this feature uses the SQL Service agent).

 

Please suggest if SQL server developer edition can be used alternatively. The functionality works well if SQL Server Developer edition is installed. Is there any violation in this case?

 

Regards
