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.

It seems essential to be able to filter on page level of a report by audience. RLS feels quite clumsy and it is not a solution, but a patch at most.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

This would be a great add. At the moment I work with several reports, but it is just time consuming and not efficient!

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Just add a simple "show this page/tab" based on a defined value type security option should be simple enought. RLS and conditional page navigation is a pain to set-up, timely and has limitations - even the fact that the who rows would need to be checked.


In Excel you have had hide tab for about 15+ years, if the page on a report is hidden based on Username or a set value - its a quick way to block someone seeing it or physically clicking on it. Then you do not need any fancy rules for RLS evalutions, just a simple bit that checks if they active user is on the guest list.


Even better if a visual could have a simple "show/no show" option that can be set by a parameter too.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

A related need to this, that may be easier to accomplish, would be to enable page-level visibility toggles when publishing to an "App" - currently it only allows you to hide/show an entire report with all pages.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Please provide this feature. Now with the audience it should be able to hide report pages easily.

Extremely useful functionality for everyone. MS, it has been several years from what I remember that is a consistent ask from the community. Disappointed at this point.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

This would be a fantastic feature! Now I have to handle multiple reports as a workaround which is really annoying.

MSFT, please, please, please, this would reduce the amount of time it takes me to develop and maintain reports by a third.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Hi Microsoft, Please provide tab level security.

As workaround with help of an extra button is not good.
