Disable or prevent Teams from autocreating App Workspace
Please introduce a global setting to Prevent Teams from creating PowerBi App Workspace automatically when creating a new Team. As the new Workspaces are detached from Teams/Groups this should be a setting to prevent the App Workspaces beeing clotted with empty Workspaces from all our Teams.

"Clotted"...good word. "Crapped up," I'd use. Another MS "Ribbon" decision.
Teams is clunky, broken garbage adopted by clueless but ruthless C-suite turds and configured as no-delete/no-correct/always-recording corporate spyware.
Teams is the childish AOL portal to your carefully crafted Power BI reports, framing them in an ugly, unavoidable one-inch border, full-screen zoom disabled.

With no other way to organize data extra workspaces clutter organization.

Is there any feedback from Microsoft on this issue? Also, I think someone mentioned that if you delete the workspace in PBI, it would delete the team in MS Teams. That's not the case. I just deleted a workspace and the team is still there in MS Teams. It is definitely annoying to have to go through that process every time a team is added in Teams.

It's hard to determine and sort through legitimate Power BI application workspaces and Teams-created workspaces that will never be used in Power BI. We have over 50 legitimate workspaces already and are now seeing Teams workspaces clutter our tenant. This is a terrible experience for our administrators.
Roger Stucki commented
Microsoft, not every Teams group needs a Power BI workspace. It really clutters up Power BI when one is created for each Teams group. Users then must sort through a bunch of workspaces to access the ones that are actually useful. If you think this isn't that big of an issue, then you overestimate the capabilities of the typical users. For my company which is just starting to use Power BI, careless design like this significantly hampers user adoption and negates my ability to sell Power BI to my senior executives (who are still unsure if they want Power BI).
Also, it’s careless design to not explicitly warn the user that by deleting a Power BI workspace they are also delete the Teams group. Right now the warning message is rather uninformative.
This doesn't happen for me, When I create a new Teams site, I get an O365 Group, but not a Power BI Workspace.

I thought this common group scenario had been eliminated with the new App Workspace but clearly not. This is not a good experience. Please stop App Workspaces being created automatically. Members of Workspaces will not have Row Level Security applied and therefore automatically having Team members added to an App Workspace makes RLS redundant
Agree completely. Adding PowerBI workspaces automatically when they are not warranted or used is an admin headache.
We have a noticeable service governance problem with users complaining that they asked for a Microsoft Team to be created, but when the Team was provisioned, they also see a Power BI Workspace appear, which they did not ask for.
Please decouple Teams and Power BI Workspaces, as they are causing a headache for IT support.
Rebecca Gigliotti commented
Agreed that this is a major issue. We are in the early phases of implementing Power BI with the same governance model of preventing users from being able to create workspaces. In our case it is critical to our IT managed self-service model since the owner of the workspace is able to control security over the content, we need to be able to restrict who is able to create/own/manage a workspace.

We are getting overwhelmed with Workspaces created by teams. I turned off the ability for Workspaces to be created but now we are getting more than ever. Please disable the "feature"
Same problem in our organization, unautorized Workspaces are popping up, from Teams groups...
Aaron Chandler-Worth commented
This is a major issue. The inability to control Teams' created teams from showing up as Workspaces in Power BI is a nightmare. There is ample control to restrict the creation of Workspaces from within Power BI but this feature bypasses all of that. As Power BI admin I no longer have the ability to police these workspaces (as I'm not often an owner of the Teams team. In addition, removing a Workspace that was created by Teams, deletes the Teams team. !!! Please fix this or give the option to turn it off!
Joakim Spehar commented
The Power BI team gets overflooded with Workspace from Teams, this need to stop. Please MS implement a function that allows us to disable autocreating from teams
Kieran Steele commented
Agreed. In waiting for the tool to convert classic to new workspaces, we've started cleanup of classic workspaces, teams adoption is generating new classic ones faster.
If you delete the workspace in PowerBI, it heads on back and deletes the teams group!
We've got governance constraints on the ability to spin up new workspaces to reduce sprawl, and along comes Teams and creates more.
It also bypasses the governance structure we have in constraining the creation of workspaces, by letting classic ones pop up with admin members.
Absolutely agree, this is really annoying. I understand MS folks don't see this as a problem, because anytime you see somebody's contents, it's a mess of all sorts of workspaces and reports. But in the business environment, it really affects the user experience negatively..
