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!

Reporting Services 2008 R2 has many new great features that I’ve written about lately (Data Bars and Indicators). Today I wanted to tell you a little about another nice add called Report Parts. Report Parts allow you the developer to create an object (graphs, charts, tables, etc…) and then your power users that actually develop reports in Report Builder 3.0 to use those objects in the reports they develop.
As the developer when you want to publish a Report part to the server. You will use the menu options Report->Publish Report Parts. Report Parts can be deployed from Report Builder also.
The object is stored on the server and can be picked up inside of Report Builder while developing.
Inside Report Builder a power user can browse the Report Part Gallery to find the Report Part needed for their report. This looks very similar to the clip art browser in Word.
Another great thing about Report Parts is when you the developer makes a change to the object all the power user has to do is check for updates on it and the Report Builder will automatically update the object.
