Today , i will share the Steps necessary  , to integrate power Bi with the DAX 365 Demo VM , so that we can Develop , test , and Demonstrate Power Bi Capabilities on the Demo VM , Without using any Azure Premium Subscriptions .

1) In Order to Make Power BI Tiles Visible on the Work Spaces Follow the Steps , mentioned in this LINK , Redirection URL Will be Devbox base URL , I.e  and Home URL Could be Any Thing , Once that configurations are done , you will successfully be able to pin Tiles From Account .
