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!

Read Getting Started with R Visuals in Power BI

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!

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN, patrick leblanc????

Ok, so what have I been up to?  Well a lot has changed for me over the past couple of months, primarily my job.  Initially I wasn’t going to blog about this, but after a couple of conversations with a few well respected people in the SQL community I decided to write a post.  As many of you know I was a Business Intelligence Architect for Pragmatic Works, which was a great position.  That job catapulted my career into orbit, literally.  However, with the fast-paced I kind of lost myself.  I was given some advice when I started the position and that was, “You have to learn to say no”.  If you have met me in person or talked to me before, you know that I am one of the most laid back guys you will very meet, and saying no to a giving a presentation or helping out with a volunteer activity is not in my nature.  I enjoy speaking and giving back to the community.  Well as a consultant you constantly meet people that read your blog, books, and articles or attend your presentations.   Of course, if they ask me a question or to speak at their local user group, I would quickly say yes.  Because of this I quickly overwhelmed myself with work and community involvement.  Looking back over my calendar last year I gave more presentations (Online and In Person) than there are weeks in a year.

As a result, I decided to take a break from everything including work.  Over the past two-three weeks I have been home learning to cook, playing XBOX, Wii, going to the movies, taking my wife out on dates.  You get the picture.  In addition, I changed jobs.  You may have noticed by now that I have been referring to my job with Pragmatic Works in the past tense.  First I want to say that I did not leave the job because of any ill feelings or anything like that.  Pragmatic Works was one of the best jobs that I have ever had, and the people are awesome.  By the way they are hiring if you are looking for a job.  I left because I needed to learn to balance a job that required travel with my home life.  Travel is ok, but I need to take baby steps with it before I am ready to take on a full-time consulting job while maintaining a healthy family lifestyle.

So, where has all of this ended me?  I recently accepted a position with Microsoft.  I think this is going to be a great opportunity for me and my family.  I will be traveling, but at a level that will allow me to learn how to balance my life, work and community involvement.  I hope to maintain a healthy involvement in the SQL Server community.  I will be ramping up the SQL Lunch soon, so stay tuned for that.  What does the future have in store for me; well to be honest I am not quite sure.  For now, I am going to learn the ropes at Microsoft and learn everything that I can about SQL Server and the accompanying technologies.  If you want to contact me or ask me questions please feel free to email me at pleblanc@sqllunch.com.

Talk to you soon
