  2. Restrict report level access within Workspace

    Please check the feasibility to restrict reports within a workspace. Otherwise, we may end up creating many workspaces.
    For ex. I have 5 reports in an app workspace and I have the different user list for all 5 reports. as one set of audience for first report and another set of next report and rest of the report ( 3 reports ) should be visible to all members in a workspace.

  3. Take over all reports when employee leaves

    We had an employee who made a ton of reports in PBI and left. Appartently, we have to take these reports seperately over as an author. Can you make an options to take over all reports of an author when that persons ends the power bi licence?

  6. Power BI Service: download only one summary page to do adaptions

    When I want to change a slicer or a measure in an existing report in Power BI Service, it is necessary to download the whole report (which can take much time).
    Often it is the case, that I need to edit only one summary page.

    Therefore the possibility of downloading several summary pages would be quite useful to me.

  7. Capacity Level Administration Settings

    In the current state you can only configure these tenant level settings for users and security groups. So if you allow security group A to use a feature, the users in security group A can use that feature across the workspaces in the tenant.

    The capacity settings page in the Power BI admin portal should be enhanced to A) allow admins to see the default settings inherited from the tenant level and B) apply settings that are specific to the given premium capacity node. Only Power BI service administrators should be view and edit these capacity-specific settings, not capacity administrators.

  10. View User Report Access by User

    It would be nice to see what dashboards/reports/datasets a user has access to by selecting just that user, instead of having to click Share on a dashboard/report and then flipping over to the Access tab. Would also be nice to select a User and then share multiple dashboards/reports to that user.

  12. Leverage row-level security (RLS) implemented at the db level

    For any mature organization there is no alternative to (row-level) security being applied to the database-level, regardless of on-premise or cloud. As PowerBI provides no reasonable way to leverage a db-level implementation of RLS, one has to re-implement RLS into every single report or dataset, an approach that can only be suggested by someone who has never had to actually administer security in a self-service environment. Technically all this 'feature' would require is the user being forwarded to the source at connection time, as it can be done with Excel for years now. SSAS is fine for those who want…

  16. Toggle between Power BI Accounts

    If you are working from 2 different domains with Pro licenses, would be great if we could toggle between PBI accounts like you can for OneDrive

  17. Add publishing approval workflow to Power BI's published to a workspace

    We have many users creating Power BI's and publishing them to workspaces. To govern what is published, it would be helpful to have a publishing workflow where a designated user, one with publishing approval permissions, can review what was uploaded before other workspace users can see it.

  18. Please provide an option to hide pages based on roles or restricting the page access through buttons

    Can we have some button which will navigate to the page or bookmark. Now we want to see only allowed users can see specific buttons and not all buttons. Also in this way we can restrict the navigation between pages too.

  19. Allow workspace members to publish and edit their own datasets/reports, but not datasets/reports owned by others

    The all-or-nothing 'edit' mode for workspace members is a bit high-handed. Microsoft should allow workspace members to publish and edit their own datasets/reports, but not datasets/reports owned by others. This would help us control how many workspaces we have to administer and also prevent non-admins from inadvertently modifying objects that other people have created.

  20. Workspace Adminstration

    Improve the administration of workspaces. As an administrator I want to be able to access and have visibility of all workspaces, dashboards, reports and datasets. I want to be able to restrict users being able to use their My Workspace. I want to be able to disable the creation of workspaces for Pro users. I want to be able to create groups to manage access to workspaces without needing global admin rights.
