Restrict publishing to workspace

I am creating a process for power bi development for a group of developers.  The processes includes CD (Continuous Deployment). 

Development process should be like: 

1. Create a branch, and download the pbix to work on.

2. Do the changes.

3. Commit to branch, and create pull request.

4. Changes added to main branch.

5. Step 4 triggers build and deploy pipelines.

6. Report is published to the workspace.

 

How can I make sure that developers don't take shortcuts and deploy directly to the workspace?

 

One option could be to read activities and check for CreateReport event, but this option is not robust enough.

 

Thank you

Hi @BoNDoK00 ,

You can restrict that only the certain people can publish the reports to the workspace, please review every role's permissions in the following documentation.

In addition, you can refer the following links to make version control for the PBI files.

To start Power BI governance using DevOps repositories and pipelines, I couldn't find a way to restrict publication on certain workspaces, other than giving them only viewer access to workspaces.

 

And given that this is not a solution for me, I will proceed with:

1. Communicating to developers that report publication should only be done through DevOps pipelines,

2. Monitoring power BI Activities to make sure developers are not publishing any reports to certain workspaces.
