Sharing from "Publish to Web" Web View

  • 1.  Sharing from "Publish to Web" Web View

    Posted Jan 10, 2019 10:49 AM
    My organization needs to share a few summarized reports with groups not a part of the organization.  In my testing of how we could do this, I noticed that if the report was published to our web portal, the "View" was sharable.  There was as "Share" icon at the bottom of the screen.  I tested this several time and even demoed it to the team.  Missing share icon

    We really liked this functionality because the "view" of the report was being shared, and the recipient did not need to use the Power BI app.   It was very simple and clean.  Does anyone know why the share ability from the Web View page has been removed.  What other options does my organization have to send simple Power BI reports outside the organization?  Thank you for your help and assistance.

    Hi @Kristen Ward,

    This is quite unusual. I have never seen something like this happen, unless your report is embedded in a web page.

    Here is an article, which might give you some more information on how 'Publish to Web'​ works.


    Alternatively, you can click on the 'flag' icon on the page and contact Microsoft regarding this issue.

    If you contact Microsoft, I would really like to know, why is this happening, as I have never seen this myself and would like to know, if this can be toggled on and off or not.

    Thank you,
