      With the upcoming move of App Workspaces away from O365 groups, this needs to be a key part of the update.

      It feels like they wanted to empower users, but wound up giving too much power to far too many, and then made us go further by requiring pro licenses to view shared content.

      These governance issues need to be addressed as a matter of priority.

        Shane Wu - Thankyou for expressing the pain I've been feeling trying to evaluate Power BI for our organisation. We're in almost the exact same boat, and frankly we're starting to look elsewhere despite being an almost exclusively Microsoft shop.

          Just in addition, this *can* be done using premium licensing.

          A few Pro licenses can publish, and Free users can consume.

          But the thing is ... our latest quote came in at an entry level annual cost of > $50,000 while a Pro license for every staff member was just a fraction of that.

          We are currently in the position of deciding if we can even use the service given the lack of governance in place.

          For our organisation, it's not even a matter of cost.

          We simply do not want to hand out report creation/distribution rights to staff who will only ever *need* to consume reports.

          It creates a huge amount of governance, security and quality concerns for the entire service.

            This is compounded by the elevated privileges of a pro account.

            I am responsible for data quality and our reporting services. I create some reports based on quality data. I hand out Pro licenses to the 20 or so lucky people who get to see my work.

            All good, except now they too can mine whatever data they can see and share with anyone else they see fit.

            Suddenly, more and more redundant, poor quality reports, and an ever-increasing number of requests for Pro licensing to see what was shared.

            +1 for drumming up pro license sales

            -100 for making a service which is now polluted with poorly sourced and modelled data which devalues the service as a whole.

              One of a great number of things which needs to happen if there is to any kind of data governance in Power BI.

                  You can achieve something along these lines with App Workspaces and Apps (where everyone accesses the App but only a few can edit), but I have to agree that it would be great to have users who are readers only.

                  At present, anyone with a pro license and access to data can import, model, report and internally distribute it to whoever they choose. The repercussions of this could be significant in regards to distributing misinformation, but worse, breaching privacy and data security policies..

                        Agree totally with what OB and dc have already said.

                        By all means, empower users. But if this is an enterprise solution then administrators need to be able to access all content and take whatever actions are required to provide compliance with corporate guidelines.

                          Seems an unbelievable oversight that this was not included in the initial product.

                                  There are a large number of governance and data security issues which need to be addressed.

                                  This was one we had not considered but is quite valid and concerning.
