Do you have a Microsoft Fabric Free Trial that expires soon, or are you planning to move your Power BI Workspaces using Premium capacity (P SKUs) to Fabric capacity (F SKUs)? Numerous Power BI and Fabric customers are currently faced with these scenarios. As long as the Fabric F SKU is either 1) in the same Azure Region as your Power BI Premium P SKU, or 2) in the same Azure Region as your Power BI (Fabric) tenant for the Fabric Free Trial, the process should be a point-and-click exercise for a Workspace. 

 

I've created the following two videos that are intended to provide some guidance on this topic for customers:

  1. Create a Microsoft Fabric Node in Azure and Attach to a Workspace - The first video walks through the process of creating a Pay as You Go (PAYGO) Fabric F SKU node in Azure. The Fabric node is then surfaced in the Fabric (Power BI) Admin portal, additional administrators are added, and an example of assigning a new Workspace to it is provided. The video is embedded below and also linked here: https://youtu.be/Cbb-jA7Hqe0
  2. Moving Fabric (Power BI) Workspace from Free Trial or P SKU to F SKU - The second video demonstrates how to move a Workspace from either the Fabric Free Trial or Power BI Premium capacity to the new Fabric capacity created in the first video. As long as the Workspace is currently in the same Azure Region as the new Fabric capacity, you'll see that the process is rather straightforward. The Video is embedded below and also linked here: https://youtu.be/q2zAf2f7wmA
