Can report viewers access Power Query parameters?

Hi all,


I have stored client credentials (client_id & client_secret) as Power Query parameters. ()


Client credentials are currently stored as power query parameters. As I know, disabling the “Enable load” option will stop loading parameters into the report. So, these parameters are not visible to the report viewers.


Is my understanding true? Is it possible to report viewers to read power query parameters any how? (even we disabled this option)

@Kaveesha_Silva  People with edit access can view parameters in Power BI parameter section. Also, they can download the report and see the parameter.

@Kaveesha_Silva : If the user permission is "Viewer", then they can't download the report and also they can't view the parameters.

Thanks for the reply @nandukrishnavs


Other than settings page (shows in the image) any other place a user can see the Power Query parameters in Power BI Service? (in the report or the dataset, even for a user having edit access)
