How can we improve Power BI?

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.

    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.

    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  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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!

    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

    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..
