  • I remember seeing this same question on the PowerBI community, can’t find the link for the life of me.

    The solution suggested was to publish to your personal workspace and share the dashboard to other users.

  • Gregory for Microsoft​ 
    I am wondering if Tekron's suggestion would work. Your feedback on this topic would be appreciated.

  • Both paths will allow sharing of dashboards, your users that create the dashboards will need PowerBI Pro then they can share with users that are not licensed to view the dashboards that those PowerBI Pro users create.

  • My understanding is that you can only share static reports not allow users to run "canned" reports even from a dashboard. The licensing on this seems to keep changing week to week, so some clarification on how this all works would be great. Even the documentation is out of date almost as fast as it comes out.

  • Content creators require a Pro license. The only way I know of to have other people consume that content without a license is either to turn it into a flat PDF (basically print it) or Publish to Web. Publish to Web will give a live report with dynamic visuals and all that good stuff but it is absolutely not secure at all. Consider this information public on the internet.
    If giving out Pro licenses like candy on Halloween isn't a practical option but spending $5k/month on Power BI Premium is too much as well, you can look into Power BI Embedded solutions as kind of a middle-ground.
