We have developed a BI Project in which we are using Power BI for the presentation layer. In our Client we have some super-users that want to create their own reports, so we are thinking to also enable them to create their own Workspaces (new Workspace concept) and applications.
My concern is that I don't want this to end up in having tons of Workspaces and applications created without control by this super-users, so I would like to have the option to also manage (edit, delete, etc.) every Workspace and application created under our tenant.
How can I do this? In Power BI administration Portal I see all Workspaces but I cannot edit them directly, and if I select a Workspace from this menu (inside admin Portal) and try to grant access to a users-group, it doesn't allow it, and my security is based on groups.
Thanks in advance
You can indeed only enter user accounts in the Workspaces part of the Admin Portal. But there is a workaround to accomplish the thing you need.
Once you've added yourself and have access to that workspace, you can navigate to the workspace itself (so outside the Admin Portal), add your desired group (of admins for example) and delete your single user account from there.
Hope this might help you.
This workaround is the only option? It is not possible to grant access to a Workspace for a users-group from the admin portal?
This Power BI is under a secondary Azure tenant, in which I am a guest and part of a users-group. The issue I am facing is that from the admin portal it seems impossible to grant access to a Workspace for either a users-group or a guest, so it looks like the only option is to create a local user in this secondary tenant, which we are trying not to do for security reasons.
Is there any other option?
Would you like to ship APIs and PowerShell cmdlets for Power BI management?
Hi, @v-diye-msft ,
I am working with Power BI Cloud service. Sorry for my ignorance, but it seems to me that the link you refer to is some SW that I have to install on a server. How does this work with Power BI Cloud service? I am sorry but I don't know how can this solve the issue I am facing.
