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.

Bookmark Security,


I created two Bookmark on the same page, Now I need to apply Security based on users for each Bookmarks.

Please let me know if this is possible in power bi.

Nearing a year since this was marked as "Under Review". Any update on this? As others have stated, the work around is not sufficient from a security stand point. And (again as others have stated) multiple dashboards causes multiple headaches.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

This should be already included in Power Bi. The workaround propose can be easily bypassed by exporting to PDF or PowerPoint for a user who is consulting the report on the web.


Upgrade with this feature this ASAP.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

Would love to have this feature. The alternative is a duplicate report in another workspace which is a lot of overhead.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

This answer is from 5 years ago. BI still does not have a solution for this? Many comments on duplication of work, which I agree with. Any solution in the near future?

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

This workaround is not a real security solution. We desperately need a real solution for this -it would solve duplicate report needs etc. There are so many votes, why is this not yet under progress?

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

I am so desperate to have this feature built into PBI. I am currently using the 'workaround' method to achieve the requirement for this but it's such a big overhead and adding a new page and respective RLS related attributes every time a new report requirement comes in is not sustainable. Please Microsoft get this on the Release Plan. It's been way too long a wait for this.

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

This "idea" was created over 5 years ago.
There are thousands of comments, that it's very useful.
So why is it still an idea "Under Review"?
In fact, not to offer this function should be handled as a bug!

A workaround is not a solution. Please make it happened

RE: Page (Tab) level Security.

A button to navigate is often not a solution. If it is a one page report that few extra or less fields/visuals, we really need it to just load, especially if it is for access for top management or factory floor supervisors. They don't want to have the extra click. Just load the correct page.
