Power BI service Dataflows ownership - Who can edit?

Can someone indicate where the controls are for dataflows ownership? Have done some testing and only the creator can change a dataflow unless there a setting somewhere to share. This is an issue when people leave the company.

@twinrabbits, it is true that today only the dataflow owner can edit a dataflow.

We are planning to add soon 'Take over' (like in dataset) option for those cases that people leave the company. 

 

Thanks,

Yaron

Come on!! This is a must. Who in their right mind made it so that dataflows could only be managed by one owner??

Hi there

I do agree but remember that this is the first versions and there will be improvements.

Hi there

Currently in the preview of dataflows only people who are part of the app workspace can edit the dataflows.

Gilbert,

         I agree but that is not what I am experiencing. Are you able to share edit ability with other admins in the workspace?
