Taking over a Personal Power BI Workspace

Olivier Van Steenlandt performs a hostile takeover:

The end user can save a Power BI report created in the Power BI Service in their own Personal Workspace but then they have no way to share it with their team. It remains a personal report/analysis.

When executing the analysis in Excel, they can distribute the Excel-file as they see fit.

The pitfall of personal workspaces in Power BI, from my point of view, is that if someone leaves the company, there isn’t a straight forward way for other end users to  take-over previously created analysis.

This is where the Power BI Administrator can be of importance.

Read on to see how a Power BI Administrator can gain access to a personal workspace and migrate reports out of it.
