hello i created a multilingual powerBI report, the language setting can be changed by "Edit parameter". But for some reasons i need to publish the report to powerBI online and share with other viewers. Now what i want to do is having a feature, so the viewers could easily can change parameter.


Any idea will be appreaciated!

hi  @iris0113 

To change the parameter in a dataset setting, it needs edit access in the workspace, viewer role could not achieve this, since this will change the dataset so it must have the edit access.


as a workaround, you could load all the data for different language into dataset, then add a flag column for different language data and combine them, now in report use slicer or bookmark to switch between them.

That's not what these parameters are for (they are mostly used to redirect the connection to a different source). Parameters on the service can only be changed by people with write access to the dataset (ie developers with a Pro license).


What you want to look into are the built-in translation features in Power BI Desktop.
