Organizing reports for multiple deployment environments

Is there a recommended way to organize content in Power BI Online for different deployment environments (staging, Q/A, production)? Should all reports and associated gateways go into the same permium workspace? Or, would it be better to have separate premium workpsaces for each deployment environment?

HI @kd_61 ,

 

If you have reports that are in "production" and reports that are in other stages then I would definitely separate them.  In Power BI, I would leave one single tenant, but have different workspaces - one for Q/A , one for production, etc.  AND, just because I would never want to get confuse and overwrite a production with a test one I would also have two report names for each report - one report for "Report1 QA" and then the production one being "Report 1".  That way I can test and play and potentially mess up the QA one without ever touching production and it would take a deliberate action to overwrite the one in production so that eliminates an accident in that regard.
