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.

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?

r

As an administrator I want to be able to manage existing Power BI Personal Data Gateways like I can with Enterprise Data Gateways. i.e. become an Admin on the gateway, be able to modify it and delete it.

r

A tenant setting should be enabled to get overview of enterprise and personal gateways, and then disable the use of personal gateways in the tenant to avoid Data Breaches or Governance issues by cowboy analysts.

r

A simple admin portal operation that would default with open to all, however if set would grey out the "Manage Gateway" option for anyone not added?

r

This admin control would be helpful, as we are supporting the organization through enterprise gateways, but once we have seen people creating personal gateways causing security and data integrity issues.

r

Lack of this kind of feature is probably going to result in a lot of my clients just blocking the power bi service.

r

'+1. This is a serious security flaw that needs at a minimum, the ability to be turned on and off at the tenant level.

r

This really needs to be resolved.

If admins cannot control this, we are risking security and data integrity issues.

r

This is a major data security issue. I can't believe Microsoft would release a functionality like this without giving Admin's a way to control it. This can lead to potential data leaks all over a company and has me reevaluating our Power BI Subscriptions.

r

This is a big security hole for us. We have an enterprise gateway, which allows us to see what data sources are being accessed and control access (which is great), but this all goes out the window because anybody in the company can install a personal gateway. We don't know what data is flying around the place.

Appreciate the flexibility is great for some organizations, but not ours. We please need a way to disable personal gateways at the organizational level.
