Sharing a report and dashboard with a licenced Office 365 E5

Hello

 

I have created a report using my PowerBI Pro licence.

 

I want to share it with an Office 365 user with an E5 licence, who is OUTSIDE my organisation.

 

I share it on my side with his email address.  I also send him the link.

 

He can view the report without a problem.  

 

However, when he is logged in using his Office 365 (E5) credentials and jumps across to powerbi.com (and we can see he is logged in as o365 user), the report I shared with him is NOT visible.

 

Any ideas why ? and also how do we go about resolving this ?

 

Thank you

Simon

@simonmuller When sharing externally, the only way the end user can see the report is by clicking on the link shared with them. They will not see any reports shared with them from outside their tenant in thier "Shared With Me" or "Apps" sections. This is likely due to the tenant differences, but what you describe is expected behaviour. They need to save the link in the browser in order to revisit the report.

Hi Seth, I have nearly the same question. If I want to share my report with people from another organisation who have also a PowerBI pro license in their organisation, will they be able to open reports I share with them? (They are guest in our organisation)

Thank you Seth
