Configure Power BI for (guest) users

Table of Contents

 

Our Power BI integration currently only supports displaying tiles from Power BI dashboards. For reports, you can create a Shortcut-tile linking to the report in Power BI service.

Introduction

You can add Power BI tiles to the workspace giving people insights on data which they need or should know on a daily base. The Power BI tile shows you the desired tile from Power BI. You can easily select tiles from dashboards.

To make workspace more visually appealing, or if you want to draw more attention to important information, you can extend the Power BI tile over two columns for tile groups (choosing a larger tile size).

Requirements

  • A Power BI Pro license.
  • The Power BI dashboard needs to be in a workspace in order for Workspace 365 to detect the dashboard.
  • Set the required Power BI permissions on the SSO app registration in Microsoft Entra ID (previously called Azure AD) as depicted below.
    Keep in mind that adding these permissions may take some time to take effect (up to 24 hours) .
