How to give admin rights to anyone

How can I give admin right to someone else so that other person would be able to make changes to the existing dashboard? I am leaving this job and need to give rights to someone so that all the published dashboards can still be viewed or editted.

As of now, my admin portal shows capacity setting and then under that there are two tabs power BI premium and Power BI embedded which do not show anything.

 

Thanks.

Re: How to give admin rights to anyone

I think you maybe a confuse. If you want more than one person to be able to manage Reports or dashboards in power bi, you have to create an App Workspace. Publish your reports to this workspace. Finally, you can add users to that place with "Admin" role. 

 

If you are talking about Office365 Power Bi administrator. That's other thing. You should manage that from Admin app from Portal Office activating this permisson to an Active User.

Re: How to give admin rights to anyone

Thanks so much for responding. I tried creating an app workspace, but I got an error message that "App workspace creation is disabled. 

App workspace creation is disabled
Creation of app workspaces is disabled by your tenant admin, or you need permissions to create them. Please contact your tenant admin.

You should validate with your Office 365 Admin with Power Bi Admin role to check this option from "Admin Portal" in the settings of Power Bi.

If they don't let you create a workpace then you might need to deliver you account and explain them that is the only way to modify the reports.

Re: How to give admin rights to anyone

If you are the admin, you should see the admin portal in power bi with all the options. Follow this link to check if you can:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-admin-portal

I sent you a picture from tenant settings.

 

If you can't see all of that, you are not an office 365 admin with power bi admin role. You may ask for it in your organization.
