PowerBI platform for external users doesn't have export data feature.

Hi, our company uses PowerBI and embeds it into our own website, however when they use it the option to export data doesn't show up. Are there any fixes or permissions to look out for?

Hi  @JJasjko ,

Make sure the export data option is enabled by the tenant admin.

Export data

You can restrict users from exporting data from dashboard tiles or report visuals.

The Export data setting is enabled by default for the entire organization. It's found in the Export and sharing settings group. This setting doesn't affect custom visuals. Downloading from custom visuals is handled by the Allow downloads from custom visuals setting.

More details: Export data 


Considerations and limitations 

Export using Underlying data won't work if:

  • the version is older than 2016.

  • the tables in the model don't have a unique key.

  • an administrator or report designer has disabled this feature.

  • you enable the Show items with no data option for the visualization Power BI is exporting.

  • Power BI admins can disable the export of data.

Hi, we only have "Export to Excel" setting. We don't have "Export data".  Maybe we are looking at the wrong place? 


Moreover, I think it might be the issue with Azure Active Directory. However, we have enabled all the settings possible and the export feature in the embedded client doesn't show up.
