Power BI Admin: policy to disable Personal Workspace's
We dont want our users to push all kind of data in to Power BI. With "my workspaces" this leads to this kind of situvation as we cannot control, where as when we steer this via "Group workspace" we could build an central solution where users can request creation of "Group Workspace" with clear data classification before we provision them in the cloud.
for Governance reasons we would Need the possibility to disable the "personal Workspace" Feature (disabling creation of Groups by all users is another Topic). Otherwise users can publish data to the Cloud Service without Knowledge of the Service Manager (Power BI Admin).

In my point of view an O365 or Power BI Admin should be able to decide security granularity for all features by setting policies per company rules in any tenant of Azure Cloud.

It might be enough to say Power BI Pro users are "read-only" users.

Since a free user soon can't share at all is this still relevant?
Doesn't it matter if someone has gone to the trouble of publishing a pbix or xlsx file to a sandbox where no one else can see?
If admin users could delete or transfer files from an individual's my workspace to somewhere else it could a useful way to draw ideas from edge users into the tenant's systems. Discoverabilty of business logic.

Another potential solution would be to prevent sharing from My Workplace... basically enabling it as a personal web option, but requiring "official" deployment to a group workspace.
Please provide ways to disable my workspaces for admins. For larger organizations, data governance is a key question asked by management executives to decide on an cloud based financial investments.
we would like to have a way for users to define the workspace they see when they log in. currently, they see the personal workspace first and if they haven't created any reports and are just report consumers, they get lost or think that there's nothing to see. It should be also possible to link Active Directory groups and roles to the workspace option in power bi.
