Disable 'Data View'

Hi,

 

I'd like to share a report with some external users, who don't have pro licences, which means i can't just publish and share a link like i normally would. I'm fine for them to see data by using filters, but i don't really want them to be able to click data and see all the underlying tables.

 

Is there any way to disable that so only report view can be used? My suspicion is not, as this is where you should be using web services.

 

Any other workarounds to sharing reports with external users who are not on the network and don;t have a pro licence?

 

Thanks in advance.

So how are you sharing then? If you use Publish to Web then you can't see the data to the best of my knowledge.


Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

HI @djh,

 

Do you mean import mode? If this is a case, current power bi not have option to disable date view tab in import mode.
Maybe you can try to use directquery and live connection mode. Data tab has been disabled in these mode.
