@adithyanaini- Both are two different things. Workspace access is access to the entire workspace - Dashboard, Report, Workbooks and  Datasets. If the Workspace is set to 'Member can edit content' all defined members in the workspace can edit any of this content, if the workspace is set to 'Members can view content' members can ONLY view content. When publishing selected reports/dashboard as an App and giving access to the App you are giving those defined users access to basically a content pack or ONE link containing all of your published reports/dashboards in that App. A user can be a member to a workspace but not an App and vice versa. Hopefully that clears it.

Hi @adithyanaini,

Based on my test, the RLS could work for your report in app, but you need to check that the one you want to share could not have the "Edit" permission.

Reference:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-admin-rls#using-rls-with-app-workspaces-in-power-b...

@adithyanaini - You can check if the Workspace is set to 'Members can view content' vs 'Members can edit content' by clicking on the ellipsis right next to App Workspace name and clicking on 'Edit Workspace'

Re: will RLS applies when i share the reports through apps?

@nirvana_moksh : Thanks again . I see below statement

 

External B2B guests are limited to consumption of content only. External B2B guests can view apps, dashboards, reports, export data and create email subscriptions for dashboards and reports. They can't access workspaces or publish their own content.

This means guest users even if added to members of workspace for view  or  If i they have own license of power bi pro they wont access workspaces?
