Build an approval process for Gateways before they become Active on a tenant. The approval process would be manged by the Power BI Admin. This approval process could be a feature the Power BI Admin can enable / disable, defaulting to disabled to retrain backward compatibility.

Current reality allows anyone with a Pro License to push any internal data they have access too to the service. With the right permission they can then push this data public without restrictions.

This feature is a must have in an Enterprise concerned about how data is used / managed. Just because some has access to a data source doesn't mean Data Admin wan't this source to become publicly available via Power BI Service.

Comments

r

This is a potentially significant concern for us as we need to be able to provide governance and oversight for Gateway use.

r

Is this personal mode going to be included soon? It's been over two years now??

r

As per docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/onpremises-data-gateway-management

it appears that you can now manage installers for the enterprise gateway though it states that it does not apply to personal mode

r

Please add this.

r

We need this at our enterprise very badly!

r

Microsoft, please add this feature. We need a way to prevent personal gateways as it is a support burden for Enterprises.

r

We really need this. This is a non-stop support issue for us.

r

This needs to be implemented, and fast!

r

At present, O365 tenant admins can control who can install on-premise data gateways in Enterprise/Resource mode, so the approval process is required for gateways installed in Personal mode.

Additionally, if a tenant-level setting/control can be added (like an ON/OFF switch) that disables any on-premise gateway from being installed in Personal mode, that would be highly desired.

r

This idea seems to be a little over 2 years old now, and we still don't have a solution for blocking personal gateways. The new 'Manage Installers' feature in Power Platform is nice, but it only applies to enterprise gateways. Has anybody found a workaround for blocking personal gateways?
