Shared datasets in new workspaces

I am looking forward to the Shared/Certified datasets enhancement coming to the Power BI Service in preview next month.  Will the datasets be able to be shared across workspaces regardless of whether it is the regular workspace type or the new workspace experience that is still in preview?

Re: Shared datasets in new workspaces

Hi @HGIllmore ,

How could you want to share the dataset? If you just want to share your dataset for your members in your workspace, you could just set members can edit Power BI content:

If you want to share the dataset across different workspace, I am afraid you could not achieve this feature currently, you could vote below idea:

Re: Shared datasets in new workspaces

Hi, Daniel,

 

Thank you for your reply.  I was referring to the new feature planned for March 2019 that is outlined here:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/business-applications-release-notes/April19/business-intelligence/p....  If I am not mistaken, this will allow me to use one dataset as a source for reports that reside in other workspaces.  I did not see anything in the Release notes to indicate whether we would be able to use the shared dataset in any app workspace, or if it would only apply to reports in workspaces that were created using the New Workspace Experience.

 

I hope this helps to clarify my question, thanks.

It is the later part of March 2019, has anyone seen this option rolled out or are the able to use it yet?  If so, how do you enable it?

Re: Shared datasets in new workspaces

In the recently posted "April 2019 Power BI Desktop Release" blog there is a comment asking about availability of Certified Datasets. Amir Netz responds saying "very very soon". Hopefully, that means yet this month. I'm assuming that will also include sharing datasets across workspaces since they are mentioned together in the roadmap.

Looks like this has been bumped to May on the roadmap.
