XMLA Endpoint and User Licences (PRO/PPU) needs

Fabric Workspace with assigned F64 sku, Warehouse+Semantic Model. 3rd Party OLAP Clients (XLCubed) wants to connect to the XMLA Endpoint of the semantic model. 

Question: Can all Users with 3rd Party OLAP Clients (i.e. XLCubed) connect to the XMLA Endpoint without additional User Licence (Pro/PPU) or do we need in this Scenario a PBI Pro and/or PBI PPU Licence for accessing? Is there a differnce between P1/F64? Documentation for me here is unclear and one could assume that with P1 no PRO is leended but with F64 each user needs PPU? I know that i can publish reports as workspace app and in that scenario there is with F64/P1 no need for user (pro/ppu) licence. but the question here is regarding the XMLA endpoint (which should also be relevant if a user connects via "analyse in excel"?!)

Frequent Visitor

Regarding the differences between P1 and F64, P1 typically refers to the Power BI Premium subscription tier, while F64 might refer to a specific SKU or capacity size within the Premium tier. The specific licensing requirements and feature availability can depend on the SKU, capacity size, and Microsoft's licensing terms.

Given the complexity and potential changes in licensing terms, it's advisable to review the most current documentation from Microsoft or consult with a Microsoft representative to understand the licensing requirements for your specific scenario accurately. They can provide guidance tailored to your organization's needs and subscription details.
