How can we improve Power BI?

Groups API - create readonly groups

We would like to be able to create groups via API in readonly mode. It is not possible to specify isReadOnly field while creating a group. IsReadOnly field is being returned on Get groups but we have no way to specify it when creating a new group. It is crucial to be able to create groups in readonly mode as we are trying to automate deployments.

    Also anyone can manipulate things for Power BI embedded reports using Javascript / Typescript using a browser debugger. If they can change the report config settings, they can display the Save button and this will allow them save changes to the report. This is regardless of whether they are an Admin/Member, or the AppWorkspace has "Allow users to view content only..." set. This front-end ability makes any read-only setting redundant.
