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.

This will be a great feature to selectively hide/display pages based on roles which can cater to different audiences. I am forced to create different reports to cater to different user base and duplicating the dataset. Please include this in the next release. Thanks.

This function is a needed feature! This would reduce the need for multiple files to visual the same data for different roles

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

This is a great suggestion. Like others, I am having to split the file into multiple files referring to the same dataset to control access via sharing. I am not a particularly experienced Power BI developer and when I started looking into the user access control I found it complicated and quickly gave up.

Must have functionality for external partner reports to restrict who should see what

Page level security is really necessary at least for published applications!!

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

needed badly. without it, we have to create multiple datasets that all draw the same data, just to display on 2 different pages in the report.
