Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Hi Chris,

 

Thank you for sharing, long awaited functionality.

Unfortunatelly was not able to play with it - Power BI web part in continious loop with the message 

"We need you to sign in again. Once you do, we'll bring you back here." We are on hybrid environment with ADFS.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Okay, found what entire tenant shall be on First Release, not only the people who publish and consume this web part. Not possible in my case...

RE: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

I expect that the requirement for everyone that needs to View the web part to have a Pro license will have a negative impact on adoption.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Does this require that I use Groups in SPO??? We don't want groups and have turned them off.

 

Will it work on a standard SPO Team Silte/Library with the new experience turned on?? We are on First Release but I don't see the option to add Power BI

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

My guess the only requirement here are modern pages, in Groups or on Team site.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Thanx Sergei. Not seeing yet in my tenant.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Please don't yell at me too much - but by Modern Page you mean the new experience on a Library - correct??

 

If not what am I missing??

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Guy, i'm not strong in this terminology, I mean Modern Pages for entire site. You may check the announcment on Power BI - https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/integrate-power-bi-reports-in-sharepoint-online/

 

What they say

We’ve been busy at work with the SharePoint team building an out-of-the-box web part for SharePoint Online using their new Modern Pages infrastructure.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Sergei, I read both of those articles and it isn't real clear to me. Microsoft-speak is sometimes very hard to follow.

 

Thanx for the input though

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Sometimes yes...

I may only share my experience - on the picture is SPO site, not Group. I'm on First Release, have Power BI Pro license, and able to add Power BI web part. That's all what i can do - current implementation requires everyone in tenant to be on First Release. Other words, i'can't add any content to web part.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Thank you very much Sergei.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

You don't need to use a Group, but it will require that you share the reports with appropriate AAD security groups to ensure everyone has access to the report. This might become harder to manage long term - Office 365 Groups also allow you to co-own Power BI content among users. By not using Office 365 Groups you run the risk of losing access to those reports if the person who owns them leaves your organization.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

The 'modern pages' are juxtaposed to 'classic pages'.  Here's a blog that introduces Modern pages and might prove helpful: https://blogs.office.com/2016/08/31/new-capabilities-in-sharepoint-online-team-sites-including-integ...  

 

 

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

So, let me summarize the requirements as on today.

Licensing:

1) Power BI Pro both for the publishers and consumers

2) O365 First Release for all tenant memebers

 

Environment:

1) Groups site is desirable; SPO site is possible with proper support of the members in AAD

2) Modern Pages is the must

 

And the open question - is ADFS supported?

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Just an update - @Clint Lechner confirmed it works with ADFS. We discuss that in two parallel threads.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

I'm not happy that all consumers need PowerBI Pro........... would be nice to see Sharepoint Online usage of PowerBI added as a bonus.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Yes, in general that's the significant limitation and it against the principle what publishers in many cases need to have Pro and for consumers in many cases enough free license. Hope will be changed one day.

However, as for today for me is much more critical what entire tenant is to be on First Release.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Can you also clarify why a Power BI Pro license is required to get this webpart? It does not make any sense to me as other has said in the thread

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint


Licensing:

1) Power BI Pro both for the publishers and consumers

 


As others have said this is a rediculous requirement. It will just mean that our tenant will never use it.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Same with me. More exactly, it'll be very limited usage.

RE: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

You guys have ruined this web part by requiring Power BI Pro. Just how much money do you want to milk from my organization? Ohh All of it!!!

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

and Power BI Pro licenses for everyone at an extra $10 a pop... REDICULOUS...

Re: RE: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Seeikng a lot of discussion over here too - I'd also encourage you to jong the dialog on the blog post annouced above. @Lukasz Pawlowski

 

As you have observed, integrating reports is a function of the Power BI Pro license, not the free version, that's confirmed.

Re: RE: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Furthermore, there are some capabilities in SharePoint, like a modern page, that can be turned on and off on a user by user basis.  Many of these use client side rendering and are good candidates for features that can be deplyed early using First Release People.  However, there are other parts of the service that require service-level configuration, and the back-end configuration for process-to-process communication and security requires that all users in the tenant are enabled for this feature for it to be effective.  We continue to refine the ways we can provide early access to code and features for testing as flexibly as possible, so we'd encourage you to consider either First Release tenantwide, or getting a trail tenant for testing that can be used in First Release Tenant mode.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

I echo the feelings about requiring Power BI Pro licences but we also restrict the New experiece to team work areas of SharePoint. The Intranet site is fully branded and in classic mode and will be for some time. We have lots of clients wanting a simple Power BI webpart on the Intranet home page to publish Sales, Performance, H&S report, often just one simple chart and we were hoping this would be perfect.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Lots of energy also happening here.  For the most visibility, I'd encourage you to share your thoughts on the blog post itself, instead of this pointer announcement.

 

We are aware there are many opinions about how the Power BI Web Part Preview has been rolled out for modern sites and for Power BI Pro and are discussing these questions throughout our internal teams.  Stay tuned.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Hey @Chris McNulty the comments on that thread have been closed and I'm working with a client that's very upset about having to purchase Power BI Pro licenses to leverage the Web Part. Presenting dashboards from SharePoint feels like a very logical step in the "digital workplace" and it's available with other visualization tools without the same overhead. What could have been a slam dunk to help boost adoption is becoming a thorn in my side.

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

We seem to have lost the Power BI preview app in the Site Page template. It was there but now is not showing anymore. I can see Bing Maps and chart which are the other new web parts that have been added.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

You might find that if your sharepoint settings for the tenant are set up to not to show preview features this hides the web app. I have seen this setting hide flow and power apps from sharepoint lists.

 

Anyone got any idea when this is planned to come out of 'Preview'   ?

Re: Announcing Power BI Web Part Preview for SharePoint

Thanks for response. Our features are enabled to show preview features as I can see the others like Bing Maps but just dont see the Power BI preview app.
