Multiple Apps Sharing an App Workspace?

I am using PowerBI Pro and I am trying to build some kind of solution with many apps in it, and I would like to share the same app workspace to be more consolidated. 

 

Let's say I have DataSet1 and DataSet2 and I would like to create Report1 and Report2 and then publish those out to App1 and App2 with different audiences. Could all of that live within one app workspace? Or is the app workspace limited to 1 app and 1 dataset each?

 

I am also curious about sharing datasources across datasets, so let's say there was a common data source between dataset1 and dataset2 - is there anyway to share those datasources?

 

Any guidance on designing a solution with multiple apps that have different permissions/reports, but sometimes share datasources would be appreicated!

Hi there

As it stands today, if you wanted to have 2 apps for different audiences you would need 2 app workspaces.

Once again as of today you would have to have 2 duplicates of the datasets in each App Workspace.
There is good news in that in the near future you will be able to have shared and certified datasets, which can be shared across multiple App workspaces.

Hi @GilbertQ thank you for the response! Do you have any idea when the shared datasets are coming or more information on that? Thanks for the help!
