Restrict columns that can be viewed when sharing on web

Hello, hope someone can help...


When sharing a report on the web I want to show my high-level dashboard, but then restrict the number of columns people can see when they right-click on the data and select "see records".


Does anyone know how to do this please?





Based on my research, there is no out of the box way. You can try with the ways provided by guavaqand please vote this idea here.


Before publishing from power bi desktop if you right click columns and hide them then they won't appear under See Records. Also if you change mechanism to directquery rather than import you won't get See records option.

Based on mySDAFSDA

Hi @rhyssmith


What you could potentially try is when you are in the Power BI Desktop is to Hide the Columns from the Report view ONLY after you have put them on your visuals?
