How do we update license keys after renewing them every year?

When you renew your licenses, you don't need to update all of your published reports with the new license key.

All reports will continue to run indefinitely with old license keys, as long as they are consumed in the view mode. Only when you need to update a report, you need to enter the new and valid license key.

Technically, the license key is checked:
  • At the moment when you click Edit (put the report into the edit mode) in the Power BI Service or
  • Open it in Power BI Desktop and publish it again to the PBI service 
At that point, you need to enter the new license key, otherwise, the report will get locked. All other previously published reports should run without interruptions for all viewers.
