ArcGIS for Power BI is a helpful visual... except it is not allowed in publish to web or in Power BI embeded.


This is a problem for public-facing reports, which are often based on public-facing open data, such as provided by government organizations.


Idea is to allow ArcGIS Maps for Power BI when Power BI publish to web and Power BI Embedded.


This page has an example of what happens when a Power BI report is designed with ArcGIS Maps for Power BI, and then published to web.

Good news! This functionality has been added: Publish to web


Awesome! Great to see this was added sometime in December 2020 or January 2021! 

Previously this Power BI documentation page said ArcGIS for Power BI was not available for "Power BI publish to web" or "Power BI Embedded" functions - now the page says these functions are available, with a caveat: "Yes, for designers signed in to a valid ArcGIS account with the appropriate add-on license. Consumers do not need the add-on license to view published content."

I believe this means that the required Esri license is a "ArcGIS for Power BI Premium App License" to publish ArcGIS content from Power BI to the web.


@UnderstandFast , not so! There has been a change in licensing that allows any appropriate ArcGIS user to publish out to web, see here. The PowerBI Premium license is defunct.

However, to publish a map enabled you do need to be a PowerBI Pro user, again all of this is in the doc above. Please let me know if I can further assist!
