"App, Reshare" permissions keep coming back.

I have an App Workspace (new style) and for the Dataset Permissions, I list several individual names. For each, I remove the "Reshare" permission. 

I then PUBLISH the App and on the Permissions tab, uncheck all the boxes. The same names are listed here as on the Dataset Permissions area.

After publishing, all the users listed under Dataset Permissions are back to having "App, Reshare".

 

How do I STOP the users from having "RESHARE" permissions? Why does it keep coming back.

Re: "App, Reshare" permissions keep coming back.

Hi there

I am not sure as to why it is coming back.

What happens if you view the permission for your dataset, by clicking on Datasets, then Manage Permissions?

@v-shex-msft 

Thanks for the reply. To clarify my steps:

1) Open an App Workspace, expand it to see all content, specifically the DATASETS

2) Click the elipsis next to a DATASET and select MANAGE PERMISIONS

3) In user the list, take one user that has "App, reshare" permissions, click the elipsis and select "Remove Reshare"

4) Click Update the App.

5) On the Permissions tab, verify that the name above is listed to be given access to the app. Also verify that all the check boxes (on the Permissions tab) are un-checked. 

6) Go back to the Datasets area under the Workspace, for the same dataset, same user. 

7) Notice that the user is back to having "App, reshare" permissions. 

 

Question: How to I keep a User from having RESHARE permissions? It keeps coming back. I want them to have App permisions and no more. Am I doing something wrong? Am I missing a SAVE step somewhere? Is this a bug? Is it by design?

Re: "App, Reshare" permissions keep coming back.

I am having the same issue.  Following the same steps as ToddChitt.  This seems to me to be a new bug since when I initially set up the permissions a few weeks ago this was not happening.  

 

Is there any resolution or way for me t keep the Reshare permissions disabled when publishing the app?

I can see the same thing happening.

The only thing I could think of, is if the App is the only way for the user to consume the report then they cannot actually reshare the App or reports/dashboards.

Re: "App, Reshare" permissions keep coming back.

Hello,

 

We are also experiencing the same issue in our organisation. It seems to be "by-design". I have created an idea in the Microsoft Power BI Ideas. Please use this link if you wish to vote.

Thank you for creating the Idea.  

 

This is really disappointing if it is "by design".  It causes real security risks since it appears that the reshare functionality makes RLS not work correctly, particularly with regards to exporting data.

Re: "App, Reshare" permissions keep coming back.

@v-shex-msftAny word on this? You created a BUG report on or about 9/11? That was 15 WEEKS ago. I still see the behavior. I still see this as a MAJOR SECURITY RISK as I CANNOT STOP OTHERS FROM SHARING SOMETHING. This should have gone to the top of the list.

 

Please advise.
