What is the minium workspace role level required to use the "test as role" feature.

What is the minium workspace role level required to use the "test as role" feature.

 

I think only Admin and Member are allowed access to the "test as role" feature.

I would like to grant "test as role" to a test team, but not grant them acess to other Admin and Member features.

 

Is that possible or a an idea worth voting on?

 

Please can super users help me. Thank you:-

Hi, @speedramps 

 

Yon can grant "test as role" to a test team and assigned to the Viewer role in the workspace.

 

If you publish your Power BI Desktop report to a workspace in the Power BI service, the RLS roles are applied to members who are assigned to the Viewer role in the workspace. Even if Viewers are given Build permissions to the dataset, RLS still applies. For example, if Viewers with Build permissions use Analyze in Excel, their view of the data is restricted by RLS. Workspace members assigned Admin, Member, or Contributor have edit permission for the dataset and, therefore, RLS doesn’t apply to them. If you want RLS to apply to people in a workspace, you can only assign them the Viewer role.
