Recommend for 20+ SharePoint Users

This option is recommended if you have more than 20 SharePoint users who you want them to access Power BI Data within SharePoint site. If you have less than 20 users, we recommend going with Logged In User Integration.

Note: We do suggest using the Master Account integration for over 20 users only for the pricing point of view, as you will need to purchase an Embedded capacity.

For more information about the cost, check out the following article:
