Power BI Publish to Web for Anonymous Access is Here

Earlier this week on Wednesday the Microsoft Power BI made an incredibly exciting announcement and released Power BI “publish to web” as a preview feature. This is HUUUUGE news! This was probably the top requested feature and its finally here thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Microsoft Power BI team!

Power BI “publish to web” allows you to easily expose a Power BI report to the world through an iframe that can be embedded wherever you like.

To publish your Power BI report to the web, log into your Power BI site.

Find the report that you want to share and click File in the top left.

You’ll see a message pop up box similar to below. Click the yellow button to create the embed code.

This is where you’ll see a very important warning!
WARNING: Reports that you expose through the “publish to web” feature will be visible to everyone on the internet! This means NO AUTHENTICATION is required to view the report that is embedded in your application.

Once you do that, you’ll receive an embed code that you can then use to expose your Power BI report within your blog as seen below!

As you can see the report maintains all the interactivity features of Power BI. And as your Power BI report updates and changes, those changes will be reflected in your embedded Power BI reports!

Pretty awesome!

Upcoming Webinar: Building Dynamic SSRS Reports with Analysis Services

Join me next week for a really fun presentation on building Dynamic SSRS
reports using Analysis Services cubes as a data source.  This webinar will
demonstrate how you can use one of the underutilized features of Analysis
Services called Dynamic Management Views.

Session details:

Designing
Dynamic SSRS Reports using an Analysis Services Data Source

Instructor: Devin Knight

Date/Time: 10/25/2012 11:00 AM

Creating Reporting Services reports that use Analysis Services as a data
source can frustrating. You designed a cube so it can be more flexible for users
but Reporting Services is static by nature. This session will walk you through
building dynamic datasets that will allow users to change the fields represented
in a SSRS report. No longer will Reporting Services be a static reporting tool
because your users will have the flexibility to change report metadata
dynamically using parameters and Dynamic Management Views (DMV).
