Our organization began using the Power BI service before Canadian data centers were available. Our only option for migration is to "document everything, create a new tenant, and republish everything". This presents a few problems:
- Power BI Administrators have dashboards and functionality toggles at their disposal. They can't download .pbixs for personal workspaces, or even workspaces that they're not explicitly administrators for.
- There's no way to export .pbix files in a scriptable way.
- There's no way to export anything other than .pbix files. The tangled yarn ball of workspaces and shares would have to be documented and recreated by hand.

This functionality is critical. Manually recreating workspaces, dashboards, permissions, etc. will take hundreds of hours for multiple large organizations that wish to consolidate their tenant. We need this functionality yesterday.
