Securing Queries from View and Modification by Other Users in Desktop App

Hello all!

 

I created a very nice application for my organization using PBI. Everyone in the firm has PBI Desktop and I providing them with a Template file so they may utilize the full functionality inside of the application as well as on-demand refreshing the data.

 

The problem is that there is no way to lock-down and secure the queries from any of the users. In Excel, you can password protect almost anything you can think of--but in Power BI, it seems the only want to protect anything is to publish it to a web service or design your own interface and embed it.

 

Why is this feature not even talked about in the Forums? Am I missing the point of the application itself? Using PBI Desktop, IMHO, is much better than the clunky web version.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Breticious,

 

Here is a similar idea shard on Power BI Ideas forum. You can vote it up and add your comments there to improve Power BI on this feature. Smiley Happy
