How to deleta a Power BI App?


I have created a Power BI App and want to delete it completely. 

I don't see where I can do this, since I only see the 'Update App' button. 


Looking forward to hear how I can completely remove a Power BI App.

The above information is not correct anymore.

Now, when you are in your workspace, you need to click the ... icon in the top menu (in my workspace, the options there are, from left to right, New, Upload, Update App, Manage Access, Workspace Settings, ...), and then Unpublish App.

To delete a Power BI App, you need to go to the Power BI app workspaces in the Power BI service. Here are the steps to do this:

  1. Open the Power BI service and sign in with your account.

  2. Click on the workspace where the app is located.

  3. Click on the ellipsis (...) next to the app, and then select "Delete" from the drop-down menu.

  4. Confirm that you want to delete the app by clicking "Delete" in the pop-up window.

Please note that once you delete an app, it cannot be recovered, so make sure you are certain you want to delete it before doing so.

Also, if you have shared the app or have active connections or dataflows, you will be prompted to remove them before you can delete the app.

Also, if the app you are trying to delete was created from a Power BI Pro or Power BI Premium capacity, you need to have admin permissions on the capacity to be able to delete the app.
