Convert Old Workspaces to New Workspaces

Hi,

 

I have some questions with regards to migration of old workspaces to the new workspaces:

1. When will the new workspaces be generally available? Where can I see the timeline for this?

2. Is the migration to new workspaces from old workspaces be automatic or do I manually reconstruct my dashboards?

3. Is it recommended to migrate to new workspaces now or should I wait for the new workspaces to be generally available?

 

Highly appreciate your comments. Thanks.

Best regards,

Mark

Re: Convert Old Workspaces to New Workspaces

hi, @markefrody 

1. Current new workspace is a preview feature, power bi-product team is developing it. and more function could be used. But we can't give you the exact time for it, and we believe that It will be finished soon.

2. During the preview period, you can't automatically convert your old app workspaces to new ones. You can however create a new app workspace and publish your content to the new location.

When the new workspaces are generally available (GA), you can opt in to migrate the old ones automatically. At some point after GA, you'll have to migrate them.

3. I recommend you migrate them after the new workspaces to be generally available. For now, it needs you manually reconstruct my dashboards and for it is a preview feature there are also some limitations in it.

But you could try it early.

Re: Convert Old Workspaces to New Workspaces

What I do to migrate old to new. Make two copies of the workspace icon with text added Old and New.
publish a new app workspace with new icon

change icon for old workspace to Old.

Republish apps in the new workspace.

migrate users.

Re: Convert Old Workspaces to New Workspaces

But surely if we create a new workspace and migrate the old workspace content across to it, the final URLs for the App and its reports will be completely different from the existing ones - meaning that the end users will need to replace all their bookmarked links.

I'm hoping that the 'official workspace upgrade tool' (when it is released) will do an inplace upgrade which won't change any of the GUIDs in the URL. Is that reasonable?

Re: Convert Old Workspaces to New Workspaces

Yes, it’s reasonable. In my case, I have a dataset that I can’t duplicate and I need it in two workspaces now.

Re: Convert Old Workspaces to New Workspaces

Hey,

 

Just wondering if there is any update on when we will be able to convert our old workspaces to the new ones?

 

Thanks,

Re: Convert Old Workspaces to New Workspaces

Yes, please!  More information on the timeline for this would be really helpful.  I do not want to devote resources to converting all of our workspaces to the new ones only to have automatic migration become available a month later.

Re: Convert Old Workspaces to New Workspaces

Is there any update on this? Is there a way to convert an old workspace to a new one?
