Renaming officeo 365 email and effect on BI dashboards

Dear Community Members,

 

I have a power Bi pro account where there arew many reports are published under My Workspace. Our organzation wants to renaming this email address to something else. I am afraid that this might have some adverse effect on my dashboards/ refresh schedule and embed codes generated for my dashboard,

 

Please let me know if it is safe to rename the associated email without affecting the current dashboard,

 

Thanks,

Hi @bix ,

 

Are you talking about this feature?

As tested, modifying the user name will not affect the contents of the PBI workspace.

Hi. I'm really not sure about this. I think it shouldn't change anything for you. If you want to be sure make a backup. You can download de reports as .pbix files. The best practise is working with workspaces (not my workspace). You can also create a workspace using powershell to duplicate a worskapce:

That way if you loose everything you have a backup.
