How to retrieve the users for my org's datasets

Hello, I'm trying to use this power bi api endpoint to retrieve the users permissions associated with datasets 

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/admin/datasets-get-dataset-users-as-admin

 

however there is an api limit of only 200 requests per hour, my organization has over 1200 datasets. It would take around 6 hours to just do a complete extract of all the user permissions for our datasets. This doesn't feel acceptable as it isn't scalable at all.

 

Is there some other way we are missing for extracting the user permissions for datasets? We are also running into this issue with other api endpoints and it is frustrating.

Hi @IvanTrost ,

You can use the Power BI PowerShell module if you want to avoid the limitation of 200 requests. You can install the module and use the Get-PowerBIWorkspace and Get-PowerBIDatasetUser cmdlets to retrieve the users for your organization's datasets. Here is an example of how to use the cmdlets:

Install-Module -Name MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt
Connect-PowerBIServiceAccount

$workspace = Get-PowerBIWorkspace -Name "YourWorkspaceName"
$dataset = Get-PowerBIDataset -WorkspaceId $workspace.Id -Name "YourDatasetName"
$users = Get-PowerBIDatasetUser -WorkspaceId $workspace.Id -DatasetId $dataset.Id

This will retrieve the users for the specified dataset in the specified workspace. You can also use the cmdlets to retrieve the users for all datasets in a workspace. Note that you'll need to have the Power BI PowerShell cmdlets installed and authenticated with your Power BI account before running this script. You can find more information on how to install and use the cmdlets in the following Power BI documentation.
