Hi @SamitDesai ,

Yes, it is possible to enable Q&A on a dataset using the Power BI REST API. You can use the "Update Dataset" API to enable Q&A on a dataset. To do this, you need to set the "IsEffectiveIdentityRequired" and "IsEffectiveIdentityRolesRequired" properties to "false" in the request body.

Here is an example of the request body:

  "isEffectiveIdentityRequired": false,
  "isEffectiveIdentityRolesRequired": false

You can use any REST client to send the request to the Power BI REST API endpoint. You need to authenticate the request using an Azure Active Directory (AAD) access token.

Please note that enabling Q&A on a dataset requires the dataset to be in a workspace that has a Premium capacity or a Power BI Embedded capacity.
