Let me show you the secrets of setting up Power BI Premium for embedding scenarios

Hola!

One of our enterprise customers approached us for embedding their Power BI reports, dashboards and Q&A in their application. They had purchased Power BI Premium SKU and want to use Power BI embedded capabilities. In this blog post, we will explain how we helped our customer setup workspace with premium capacity and use it for embedding reports.

A quick recap of embedding your reports in Power BI:

  1. A master account (a user basically) with Power BI pro license in Azure AD tenant
  2. An application in Azure AD and with permissions setup (more on this in next blog)
  3. A workspace (or groups) to publish reports to be used in embedding
  4. User created in #1 to be admin of this newly created workspace

How do we assign premium capacity to this newly created workspace?

1. Go to “Settings icon” in PowerBI.com, and select “Admin portal”

2. Inside of the Admin portal, select premium settings

PremiumSettings

3. On premium settings screen, select the capacity that you want to use

4. Click on “Assign Workspaces” in the capacity you have selected

5. You will be presented with a screen, add the user that you created initially (a master user, remember?)

6. After this, go to this new workspace, edit it, and ensure in advanced settings “Premium” is ON. You need to have workspace assignment permissions in order to enable it.

7. When selecting “ON”, select the appropriate Premium capacity that you want to assign to this new workspace

PremiumOn

Hit Save, you are done!

Now this workspace has Premium capacity turned ON. How do you verify it?

Go to this capacity in premium settings and check if this workspace is assigned.

You are ready to embed your reports. You need to get a token, write some JavaScript and backend code and you are done!
