Power BI Admin monitoring

I need to connect to the data sets in the new power bi Admin workspace. I can't figure out how to change the access from read to a role with more rights. Can anyone advise me here. 
The purpose is to be able to retrieve user statistics. Any alternative ways to do it?

Dear @GeirBerge1463 ,

I think this is currently not possible because the admin monitoring workspace is in preview mode.  There are some functions missings and not available as we know these from the normal workspaces - based on my tests for example:


You cannot remove Workspace users if they are added once as viewer 
You cannot create a live connection to the dataset "Purview Hub" or "Feature Usage and Adoption" so regarding your question you cannot create a composite modell or something else.

Hi, @GeirBerge1463 


A user's role in a workspace implicitly grants them permissions on the datasets in the workspace, as described in the following table.



A user with an Admin or Member role in the workspace can explicitly grant permissions to other users using the manage permissions page.



For reference:

Dataset permissions - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

Manage dataset access permissions - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

Hi I think you missunderstand me. Yes I know this for ordinary workspace.  I referer to the new Admin monitoring workspace. I are an Fabric tennant admin . I even me or other 365 admin can upgrade fra view to ovner . The functionality is Grey out. Also the new governance workspace.
