What is PowerBI Data Portal?

PowerBI Data Portal is a web tool that opens Power BI dataflows from a Power BI workspace to any user, regardless of access to that workspace or working in the same organization. Users can add Power BI dataflows from their workspace to PowerBI Data Portal, and create an Open Data (OData) connection string URL for each of them. This URL can then be shared with anyone and added to Power BI Desktop (or any other software that supports OData feeds), giving users access to all the data in the dataflow in read-only mode.

This simple solution solves the very complex and time-consuming problem of having to implement an external ETL process and gives clients, partners and suppliers access to data they can use to create their own apps and integrations.
