Power BI Administrator - Access to workspaces

Hello,

 

as a Power BI administrator, I need to able to access all Power BI workspaces in the tenant.

 

I know it is possible to gain access workspace by workspace by using "Admin portal" --> "Workspaces" --> click on desired workspace "..." and grant myself access. 

 

But this sounds more like a workaround and doesn't make it easy for administration, because

 

1. I do not know when a new workspaces was created and it is manual work to add admins to each and every workspace

2. It also confuses workspace members that now there is also another person allowed to access their workspace (when they check the Access menu)

3. Of course, this only works starting with V2 workspaces.. as we have a lot of (80%) our workspaces still in V1, migration also needs to be done before.

 

Is there any other way to gain access to workspaces (including personal workspaces)?

 

Thank you

 

Best wishes

 

Johann

Hi! I'm sorry but that's the only way to administrate the access with UI. You can always build a script or piece of code to make those operations with the REST API.

Remember you can't be parte of the "My Workspace" of other users even if you are admin. Those spaces are Personal only.

I hope that helps,
