Disable Sharing Form Personal Workspace

Hi Community,

 

My understanding of best practice in Power BI is to have all shared reports/dashboards in locations that can be managed both from a security perspective as well as a data perspective. Workspaces (especially the new version) is perfect for this as we can assign roles to AD groups and users etc. Whilst I accept the need for personal workspaces & the fact they can not (and should not) be disabled all together is there a way of disabling sharing from them? I am sure I am not theonly one who has come up with this issue, I just can't find a way of effectively managing personal workspaces & so ensuring all data reported on within the company is coming from a known 'trusted' source. failing the ability to restrict sharing is there an inbuilt process for me to manually contact users who have reports so i can monitor their usage?


Thanks in advance for your help

Hi, @Anonymous 

 

As far as I know there is no such setting, disabling re-share permissions for reports, using row-level security for roles, and publishing an app to specific users might be workarounds.

I got excited when I found this post, looking for this exact setting for the same compliance reasons.  Personal workspaces are such a danged when users misuse (even by accident) the conveneinence and ease-of-use.  Microsoft makes it so easy for users it can be a nightmare for administrators.

How does everyone manage an environment where more than half of you do not have control over & can't restrict the damage that half can cause?
