Splitting a Power BI Report into a Golden Dataset and a Thin Report

Imke Feldmann walks us through separating data from report in Power BI:

The other day I discovered a neat way to split up an existing Power BI report into a Golden Dataset and a thin report file with very few adjustments to the existing setup. Imagine you have a Power BI report published for some time already in an app with row level security. Now, you want to create other reports from the dataset as well and decide it’s time to create a golden dataset from which multiple other thin reports can also be fed from as well. But ideally you want to keep your published app, that many users are working with already, unchanged.

There’s a way to do this and Imke shows us the way.
