I am in the process of building a multi-tenant application that requires visualizations. I am exploring PowerBI embedded for this purpose. I cannot use Power BI's row level security as data from each tenant cannot be in proximity to another tenant's data.
Each client will have different data sources but will need access to the same PowerBI report template. The only difference between clients and their reports will be the data sources their report points to.
Here's how I am approaching this problem:
My concerns with this approach are the following:
How does this approach sound? Are there more sensible alternatives for my desired result?
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
There are some limits with the current Power BI REST API.
So I am afraid currently there is no proper way to overcome some of your concerns.
1. For security concern, please consider add authentication to your Application,
2. You may take a look at the following blog, which may help in your scenario,
3. If each group represents a different tenant, it is recommendded to have it in different workspaces,
4. Consider set up Data Refresh, you could re-bind Power BI Reports to the proper dataset with the Rebind API:
