As a developer with a Pro license I was making use of the same "glitch" to share reports with report "consumers" until the security fix showed up late last week.
To make a long story short, there is no way to let users see reports (securely) without either:
Microsoft has done a "spotty" job of clarifying use case scenarios on how to share, focusing on developer collaboration and access levels that don't take into account that there are report consumers that only need "once in a while" analysis tools. Understanding these has been frustrating for me to learn...mostly by trial and error. Here's a rundown of the different sharing scenarios based on my experience:
That last bit about opening the dialogue is how I choose to engage the organization. I use a lot of easily found SharePoint pages with Secure Embedded reports. Knowing it exists gave report consumers a sense of what was available, but that "Request Access" button pre-established the concept that there were some hurdles to get it.
In short, sharing isn't free (despite a lot of ways to share), but how you choose to share can come with benefits in managing content and communicating effectively with your report consumers.
Hope that helps...good luck!
Thank you for your response, Vishesh. I did try the embed code option, and when I tried to view my report on my organization's web site, I was required to log in with my Power BI credentials. I was hoping I could have the report displayed without needing any type of authentication.
Thanks again for your assistance,Monte
Thank you so much, Ben. I attempted the File | Publish and used the Embed option, but the report required a log-in to Power BI to view the report. I was hoping that I could have the report set up like the one you have linked in your message. When I choose embed in a public website, I receive a message that anyone on the Internet can see the data, which is fine, however, I also see that the report may be used by Microsoft on a public website or public gallery.I did not proceed past this step, as I was not sure if, when I choose publish to a public website, whether or not I would simply be provided the embed code, or if my report was going to be published on a public page outside of my organization. I guess I'm just confused at what this message is actually telling me, and what happens once I click "publish".Thanks again for you time in responding to my questions, I very much appreciate the sharing of expertise!
