Restrict particular user to Export data

Hi,

 

I wanted know how we can restrict particular user to export data from power bi report in the power bi service i.e., he/she should have access to view all data in the report but should not have access to export data to excel. And some users should have access to view all data and also can export the data to excel.

 

I cannot use following option since it will restrict all users from exporting data.

I cannot proceed with following solution (in admin portal > Click Tenant settings > Export data, then we can input the particular user account) since the restriction criteria is only for one report in power bi service.

Please help me to know how to do it.

 

Thanks,

AshDil

Hi, there is no specific configuration about preventing one user to export one report. The only way to avoid the export for single user and single report is keeping the user as Viewer at the workspace and revoking the build permission.

The doc says: "Allow users to export data: Even users with the Viewer role in the workspace can export data if they have Build permission on the datasets in that workspace."

If you revoke the build permission for Viewer then they can't export. 

That's the only way I think.

I hope that helps,
