Power BI is an integral part of Office 365, if O365 download feature is disable what is the impact?

We need your advice if by any way Office 365 download feature is disable it will impact the following Power BI services :

  • Power BI download report in PBIX, PDF (Mandatory: if not able to download, build will get impacted for existing Reports)
  • Analysis of Data in Excel (Optional : Not used much in any processes)
  • Export Power BI table to csv (Optional:  if not working CSV KPI files to be accessed for comparison)

    I truly appreciate your assistance and  I look forward to your guidance on this.

Hi @PriyankaNag 

Download in Power BI is a setting in the Power BI Tenant level. If this feature is disabaled by the Power BI Admin then only the first point is affected which is "Power BI download report in PBIX". The 2 other points belongs to 2 other configuration settings and at the Tenant level as well.
