The ability to monetize Power BI apps is one of the main incentives to develop and offer these applications to the market. The licensing, set by the application’s developers, must be enforced by the platform to avoid abuse and revenue loss. Licensing enforcement is based on users registered and managed in Azure Active Directory as the application’s users.
