Allowing users to edit in but not publish from Power BI service

Hi,

 

We want to allow users to edit reports in their own workspace, so be able to add tabs, drag and drop objects, and create charts etc.

 

But, we do not want them to have the ability to publish these changes as an app. Basically, we want them to have the freedom to do ad-hoc reporting, but want to stop them from sharing these ad-hoc reports with the rest of the business in the app space.

 

From what I have seen so far, it seems that you can either have edit rights, and therefore the ability to publish, or have the ability to do neither.

 

Can anyone help with this?

 

Many thanks,

 

Niall

You can create a new workspace and assign the users as contributor. Please see the roles below:

Capability Admin Member Contributor
Update and delete the workspace. X    
Add/remove people, including other admins. X    
Add members or others with lower permissions. X X  
Publish and update an app. X X  
Share an item or share an app. X X  
Allow others to reshare items. X X  
Create, edit, and delete content in the workspace. X X X
Publish reports to the workspace, delete content. X X X
