The new preview feature DirectQuery for Power BI datasets is very useful https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/directquery-for-power-bi-datasets-and-azure-analysis-services-preview/ However, its a limitation that the user has to have build permissions on the dataset linked to by direct query. I want to use this feature, but don't want to give the report users build permissions. I would expect that read permissions would be sufficient.

This is definitely a blocker for empowering self-service users in an enterprise

B

Also you have to set all build permissions by hand which is a tedious job

B

Very much needed indeed!!

We're making a "golden" dataset to centrally to share with our markets. The intention is for our market headquarters to be able to share it to different viewers in the market. We cannot do that without giving build permission on the main dataset to the viewers which is not acceptable.

B

This feature is great but not usable in business case because of this limitation :(

B

Golden Dataset is a great methodology but unfortunately we cannot use it as we have to give build permission to end users. It will be great if we can limit this to Viewer role only without requiring to have Build permission.

This is indeed very necessary in order to achieve self-service BI on an enterprise level

B

If not for the presence of other similar bugs, this would be comical.

B

essentially for it to be used with an enterprise model

B

Really needed! Please implement!
