Warning "You've selected microsoft fabric free" popping up for some users

We have a full Azure license and Power Bi license in our company. We would distribute reports to users and it would work just fine. All of the sudden we are receiving this warning asking users to register to get a license which makes no sense since we already pay Microsoft a ton of money (yes, frustrating). Now, we had our Tenant admin provide elevated acces E5 in Power Bi to those users (they all had E3) and that resolved the issue. Does any one know why this is happening? What is the solution and how can we handle it without having all our users not have elevated access?

Hi @lg01 ,

It seems that the issue was temporarily resolved by upgrading users from E3 to E5 licenses in Power BI, which suggests that the warning might be related to the specific features or content access requirements that are not covered under the E3 license but are included in the E5.

If you want to use it without raising the privileges, you may need to check out the advanced features of the E5 license and replace them with features that can be used with E3

Best Regards,
