Question and help on licensing

Good day, Community.

 

I am catching up on licensing changes and wanted to make sure I fully understand the implecations of certain licensing before planning new data structure and workspaces. 

 

I will soon need to begin developing new dataflows from an on-premise data source. The data is fairly large and want to leverage things like computing tables, incremental refreshes, etc. For this, I will need premium features. My question is, if I set this space up as PPU (there will be a few of us using this dataflow workspace) and create a Pro workspace that will house the datasets built from the PPU dataflow, will end users simply need Pro licenses to see/digest the reports in the Pro workspace, or will they need PPU licenses because the dataflow source that populates the dataset is PPU?

 

Hope this makes sense. Thank you in advance for any help or guidance!

Was able to work out the final details. Launching a semantic model and associated report in a Pro workspace that is fed from a dataflow that resides in a PPU workspace odes not prevent Pro licensed users from digesting the report. The issue lies with refreshing the semantic model. You cannot schedule refreshes unles the workspace the model is in is changed to a PPU workspace, which then requires everyone to have a PPU license. 

 

Thank you again for all the feedback.

Thank you for the replies. Definitely understand you must be PPU licensed to access content in a PPU workspace, but what about a report in a Pro workspace that gets data from a PPU workspace? Same thing?

 

PPU workspace dataflow feeds a semantic model and report in a Pro workspace. Can Pro users access the report in the Pro workspace?

Yes same thing. What matters is the dataset and where it is located. User can't see data in a report without permission to the dataset.
