Restricting access to the data in Power BI reports for some users

Hi all,

 

We have some reports in an app workspace on Power BI Service (reports are using Import connection to SQL).

Many users are members of this workspace and we would like to give access to the data in the reports only for some of them (based on a list of users).

From what i read this can be done using RLS/Dynamic security but there is a concern with the maintainance of the users who are to be mapped to that role, in Power BI Service.

 

Is there a way to do this more dynamically? Meaning to avoid having to manually add members to the role in the Security for Dataset and to update it every time there is a change?

Or a different way to restrict access ?

 

Thank you,

Ioana

Hi @avramioana ,

 

If you don't want to add multiple users to corresponding roles one by one,  you could contact with you domian administrator to create a user group, add users to this group, then you could directly type this group into Role rather than individual user account.

Create a Security Group in the Office 365 admin portal, add the users to that, then add that group to your RLS settings. Then, just change users in the group. You'll never need to edit the RLS specific settings again.
