Re: Prevent export underlying data

I am having the same issue with the export settings options missing. I am unable to export data on the reports I created and own!

Same issue for me. Wonder when this will be available again or when they remove the option completely to prevent questions.

Re: Prevent export underlying data

Same problem for me.  Can't get the underlying data in Power BI Service 


Re: Prevent export underlying data

Missing for me too. This is important enough that it should be restored. Anyone have any update or clue to what happened?

Re: Prevent export underlying data

Hi All,

I guess they have restored this setting. I believe.
In order to Prevent you can go to admin section and disable this functionality

Re: Prevent export underlying data

Hi Guys,


Can we restrict an individual user?


When I explored and found that only security group can be restricted. Please correct me If I am wrong. 



Re: Prevent export underlying data

Hi @ShivendooKumar ,


There is a report setting under option, even same setting is also there in Power BI service - Hide the visual header under visual option (Power BI desktop)
Under setting visual options ( Hide the visual header in reading view) - In Power BI service

If you make this change , visual header will not be available for any visual in Power BI adn user will not able to use export functioanlity in Power BI.

You can also use Export data "none"

This can be one of the fix for your curretnt situation. BY doing so, user will not abe able to export data from report.


Re: Prevent export underlying data

Here I got complete question:


You have a user named User11. User11 is a member of a security group named XYZ PowerBI.

User11 has access to a workspace named XYZ Workspace.
You need to prevent User11 from exporting data from the visualizations in XYZ Workspace.

Which is correct here:

1 From the Microsoft Office 365 Admin center, you modify the properties of XYZ PowerBI. (this is right according to me)


2 From the Power BI Admin portal, you modify the Tenant settings. (Admin portal-- Tenant settings-- you can restrict groups and not individual)


3 From the Microsoft Office 365 Admin center, you remove User11 from the All Users security group. (If you do so then user will not have access to anything)


4 From the PowerBI setting, you modify the Developer Settings


My ans is 1
