Row-level security enabled by roles for datasets feature released in March 2016. is great but a manual process. It should be enabled via Rest API too. That would allow synchronization of user roles with custom applications automatically.

We’ve acknowledged it and we want to do it but we don't have a timeline to share yet

Make this happen, Microsoft!!

There should be nothing you can do from the website (app.powerbi.com) that you can't do from the API. I accept that there may a lag between website availability and API availability, but all functionality should either be implemented or be on the product roadmap.

But you cannot assign members programmatically to a role.

You can automate roles via this method https://micatio.com/blog/automate-roles-in-power-bi-desktop/

Hi Team,
Can we create a Static row level security using power bi?
my requirement is need to 50+ static row level is there any way we can achieve using power bi Rest Api.

T

I have over 100 roles i need to create, and subsequently map said roles to users/groups in the portal.

While I can automate the AAD group creation and membership, the lack of such automation with roles and mapping within Power BI means this is an incredibly painful and time consuming task that is very difficult to manage. Any benefit gained by RLS is ruined by this overhead. I cant see this being used by enterprise companies outside of basic reporting.

T

Is there any update on this feature available?

T

I fully agree that if we want to manage roles on data set we should have an API for that or may to propose it in the Power BI portal through an administration tool enabling the management of a huge number of roles for a large scale deployment.
This feature is powerfull but today it's difficult to deploy it.

Hi, It's realy a big effort to manage this point manually on large scale deployments. Is there any update?

T

I'm also interested with that because security is a blocking point.
