Power BI Premium Per User - Publish Reports Online

Hello, this may be a dumb question, but I can't locate it online. 

 

I currently have Power BI Pro, and I'm interested in upgrading to Premium Per User when available. I want to make sure there are no interruptions to those who view my reports online though. When I publish a report online for others to view on the web, will my change in license affect their ability to see the report or will nothing change?

 

Thanks!

Hi @tony_jenkins 

 

If you upgrade your license and DO NOT upgrade any App workspaces the users will still be able to view your reports/dashboards

 

If you create a report/dashboard in an App Workspace that has been changed to PPU, then all users who want to view those reports in that App Workspace (Having PPU) will also require a PPU license.

So does this mean, that when I upgrade from pro to premium, we'll need someone to work on the data modelling and another working on the visuals/publishing?

I only want to make use of dataflow table manipulation features (merge/append while keeping the data refresh active), so I'll upgrade as the report developer; Would that make all the other users still able to see the report that was created by another colleague who has pro license? in this case, I cannot publish new reports to that workpsace or update the app beacuse anything I do would be premium?

is it so?

 

Hi @sayed_ 

 

If you are using Power BI Premuim the users with a pro license will be able to consume the dataflows.

 

If you are using Power BI premium per user then each user would need a premium per user license.
