Only the owner can edit the dataflow

I've created my first dataflow.  Unfortunately the documentation notes "It's important to know that there is only one owner of any dataflow, which is the person who creates it. Only the owner can edit the dataflow." In order to collaborate with other workspace members is there a way to change the owner of the dataflow so that another member can modify it?

Hi @tcash .

Based on my research, I am afraid that Power BI coul only support owner to edit the dataflow and the PG will plan to add soon 'Take over' (like in dataset) option for those cases that people leave the company. Hope it could help you.

Is it possible to change ownership to a group?  If you have a large team who can work on the dataflows, how would all members of the group be able to edit it?

hi there,

how soon can we expect to have the "take over" functionality on dataflows as we do on datasets

Hi All ... 

Anyone got a date for when the take over function will be available for Power BI dataflow ? 

This is gettting to be a hassle in my business - may have to revert fom using dataflow as we can't maintain them 

Alternatively - would be excellent if a AD group could own the dataflow (and dataset for that matter)
