Api availability for Dataset -> Manage Permissions -> Direct Access -> Add User ?

Is there any Power Bi Api available for adding users/providing access to a Dataset ? 

 

I have found the api documentation for adding user to workspace and adding datasource users. I would like to know, if there is any api available for adding user to dataset?

From the Power Bi Web portal, this is accessed by:

Workspace -> Datasets + Dataflows -> click Manage Permissions for a Dataset. Now, select Direct Access and Add/Remove users here with share/build permissions.

Please share your thoughts on how we can programmatically add users to a specific dataset with the above options.

I couldn't find an api for this process. When I tracked the network calls, it is calling the url:

Hi @sreejiths ,

Currently there is no such REST API to realize assigning the related permission of datasets to specific users. You can raise a new idea and add your comments there to make this feature coming sooner. And here is one similar idea shared on Power BI Ideas, you can vote it up and add your comments there to improve Power BI on this feature.
