Understanding Power BI Service Administrator Permissions

Melissa Coates walks us through Power BI permissions:

Based on the tests I’ve been doing, I’ve observed that users with membership to the Power BI administrator role have two sets of permissions apply:

  • Activities which are scoped across the entire organization
  • Activities for which normal user permissions apply

Within the above 2 categories, I’m thinking there are 4 main types of activities:

  1. Manage tenant settings (always scoped to the organization)
  2. Compile inventory and metadata (can be scoped to the organization)
  3. Manage workspace users (can be scoped to the organization)
  4. Export content from a workspace (relies on user permissions)

There’s a fair amount to digest, but Melissa does a good job explaining the implications of specific permissions.
