App navigation and permissions

Hi all


I'm building an app in Power Bi Premium with multiple selections and links.

For now, I'm using one dataset and one report.



1/ can I set permissions on a specific selection, or is this only possible for the entire app?

(why? I want to build one app with multiple reports, but not everyone should see every report/selection)

2/ my report has more pages, can I link specific pages to a "link" in the app? (or do I have to make a separate report)


Thanks and have a nice Sunday!

Hi, @marcvd 


It is unsuppoted to set permissions on a specific selection. Reports and Dashboards are all created from datasets. Considering the security of data, the permissions are based on datasets rather than elements in reports.


For further information, please refer to the following document.

Build permission for shared datasets 


Best Regards
