PowerBI and CDS - Licensing

Greetings all,

 

If I were to create a PowerBI Dashboard built from CDS data - will the people I share the dashboard with (within my organization) require a Level2 PowerApps/Flow plan (or the current equivalent premium account) ?

 

Thanks

Hi @cofordpa ,

 

Actually, this is up to the Power BI, and there is no need of PowerApps license for user to be accessible to the report containing CDS data, you only need to share the permission of report.

Hi @cofordpa ,

 

The App designer needs PowerApps Plan 2 to create CDS database or model the data, and the users need PowerApps Plan 1 to be accessible to CDS data. it can be found in this doc: License requirements for entities

Hi Sik,

 

It's agreed that a level 2 plan is needed for CDS.  What I'm wondering if someone within my organization is viewing a PowerBI dashboard created from CDS data, will they also need a premium PowerApps/Flow plan - OR will the be able to view the CDS fuelled dashboard with a normal O365 account?

 

Thanks!
