Add-PowerBIWorkspaceUser - adding group to Workspace

Hi,

I am trying to automate different PowerBI tasks using a service principal.

I can create new PowerBI Workspaces and the service principal is an admin on the Workspace.

Afterwards I would like to add a synchronised AD group as contributor, with the following:
Add-PowerBIWorkspaceUser -Id <ID of PowerBI Workspace> -PrincipalType Group -AccessRight Contributor -Identifier <Object Id of AD group>

I get the error:

Add-PowerBIWorkspaceUser : Operation returned an invalid status code 'NotFound'

 

Am I missing something - or doing it wrong?

HI , 
Below worked like a charm :

Add-PowerBIWorkspaceUser -Scope Organization -Id <workspaceid> -UserEmailAddress mahak@xxxxxxxxx.com -AccessRight Admin
Ensure: You have Admin Rights to add the user. I tested it just now my user from which running API has Admin Rights on the workspace and its Premium ( to be considered if you are adding free user ) 

Waiting for update 🙂

Did you tried : 

Add-PowerBIWorkspaceUser -Scope Individual -Id myWorkSpaceIDasString -Identifier myIdentifierAsString -AccessRight Admin -PrincipalType Group

Regards,Mahak 

Also, there is a very nice blog/code available for Automation: https://github.com/microsoft/powerbi-powershell/blob/master/src/Modules/Workspaces/Commands.Workspac... which can help more. Tried and Tested.

I tried it, but I get the same error:

Add-PowerBIWorkspaceUser : Operation returned an invalid status code 'NotFound'

 

It works when I add a user to a Workspace:

Add-PowerBIWorkspaceUser -Id <Workspace Id> -AccessRight Contributor -Identifier <User UPN> -PrincipalType User

Yes - the same works here, when adding a user.

 

But unfortunately it doesn't work when adding a AD group.

Did you tried the latest code I posted?

Login-PowerBI

#Using AD Security group

$Body = @{
identifier= “add your Odject ID here” #Object ID for the Security group
groupUserAccessRight= “Admin” #Permission for the group to the Workspace
principalType= “Group” #The type of Principal(App, Group, User)
}

$BodyJSON=$Body | ConvertTo-Json
Invoke-PowerBIRestMethod -Method post -Url “/groups/Add your group Id here/users” -Body $BodyJSON #Workspace ID

 

Can you trythis too. 

 

This worked for me to add my Functional Email Group to the same workspace.


Cheers 
Mahak
