Workaround for Hiding workspaces

Hello, I have already voted the idea for solving the problem of unwanted workspaces coming for instance from Teams groups etc... 

I am wondering if meanwhile I can hide or make unavailable to the users some workspaces  (even by using API or other O365 functionality). The situation is pretty messy. 

I was thiking to delete all the users of a workspace. Can it make sense? Does it affect the related Teams too?

Thanks in advance

No it cannot be a workaround cause is affecting the related team.

I am pretty sure that is a common issue for everyone and I think that could be considerend a bug and not an enhancement.

Hi @thebigwhite ,


I don't think it is actually in production yet but there is the ability to hide the "empty" workspaces - I think this means the non Power BI ones.  This is what is on the roadmap (again, I don't think it is there yet).


"Allowing Power BI Admins to hide empty classic workspaces 

Many classic workspaces that are empty because they were created automatically when an Office 365 group was created. We will introduce a new Power BI tenant setting allowing Power BI Admins to hide these empty classic workspaces and to delete them. We expect this capability to release by October 2020. "


I would appreciate Kudos if my response was helpful. I would also appreciate it if you would Mark this As a Solution if it solved the problem. Thanks!

Let's hope. Actually I read in the past about this feature expected for october ... but I guess they are still working on it.

Hi @thebigwhite ,


If you want to keep the workspace and prevent users access to the workspace, you could try to delete the users in the workspace. And yes, it will affect the related team.
