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.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

We also needed this feature as Business doesn't want to use an extra button to navigate to hidden pages as it is not user friendly and creates more confusion.

Hope this will be considered in future releases.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Not sure why this isn't at the top of Top ideas being as it has almost 9000 votes and the other highest is 3000 something. Feels like this idea is being hidden until people forget about it!

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Please do consider below point before doing a public preview.


1. If report has “REPORT BOOKMARKS” user can still bypass the page navigation and access the pages. – Please give report authors to hike the “REPORT BOOKMARKS”.


2. Export to “PPT” – user can still bypass the page navigation and access the information.


3. Export to “PDF” – user can still bypass the page navigation and access the information.


So, we need a proper Page security so we can use single report/App for different department with Page security. Thanks

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Any update if this will be added to the roadmap? The conditional navigation is a workaround, but doesn't provide a fool proof way to hide pages (export to PDF, PPT shows all pages; bookmarks bypasses this too)

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

That's a very important feature, please make it available as early as possible

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Microsoft,


This is a highly needed feature. I currently need to implement Page Level Security as a business solution, but it is not currently possible.


Developing multiple reports which maintain different views of the same data & measure calculations is a continual headache & waste of company resources. To constantly ensure that for any change made to any 1 of these reports, the same change must also be developed in all other reports, is the opposite of best practices. 90% of development must be done N times (for each report), rather than 1 time as it should be 1 single report.


If Microsoft could make adding this feature a priority, it would be GREATLY appreciated.


Sincerely,

Nathan Vail

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Does anyone have any idea when this will be available? Could really do with this functionality as our security team was able to break the work around within 5 minutes of me sending it to them.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Unfortunately the work around that has been posted before (hiding all tabs and creating a dynamic menu) is not sufficient. There are numerous use cases where someone might have access to column level data in some visualizations, but shouldn't be allowed to see the same column in other visualizations. Meaning if we did the "work around" they could technically get to the "hidden" page and see the data re-shaped in ways that they shouldn't.


Would be great if we could actually hide/show tabs based on role/user with true security built in.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

as per this idea still we cant add RLS for the page navigation ,so my recommendation to to add Tab under Fields to be "pages" and visual under visualization under name "special page navigation" so will be much fixable to assign what we need and to be liked to the security by adding actions and more designs .
