Add security to show/hide any specific page (Tab) on a report based on users privileges / Roles.

Thanks for all the feedback! Currently, Power BI does not have a security feature for pages; however, using conditional page navigation and RLS, you can create a custom navigation experience that shows different page options for different roles.

Stealing this from Tobias Owen on the Feature Summary Blog

The ability to hide pages is brilliant, thank you! Is it possible to apply Row-Level Security to whole pages so that they can be dynamically hidden for some users but not for others?

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Much needed!
Could just be a simple setup in PBI Service (like sharing with different users, but sharing within one report). More advanced features could follow later (such as AD Security Group setup etc.)
Thanks!

This feature will help minimise maintenance and updates

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Agree entirely with a bunch of the comments. We have pages that are designed to be used as drill through only. Over time we have had to make a bunch of changes to cater for people browsing and wanting to filter in other ways.

The other use case is where we are developing pages in a report while also maintaining other pages - so managing multiple pbix files is equally as bad as publishing half finished pages. Hiding the unfinished pages could be one solution, otherwise role based security on seeing a page or even just a checkbox to choose which pages to actually publish.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

This would be a fantastic addition to go with the new drill-through feature. Please look into this!

We really need this functionality. Can we get a comment from Microsoft if it is in the works?

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

This would be a huge win and I could see how this would work well with drillthrough

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Agreed. Also hiding sheets which can still be accessed via the drillthrough feature would be very helpful. Some pages are now designed only to be drilled in to, and should not be able to be opened without using this feature.
