Description

This course is designed to lead users through the experience of working with Power BI content in the Power BI service. This web-enabled environment is where content creators and business users go to develop, deploy, and consume content. This course will walk through the process of creating Power BI workspaces in this environment, provisioning user roles, and publishing content to these spaces. It will also walk through the steps necessary to make that content available to a larger business audience by developing workspace apps.

Content in Power BI is also constantly iterated upon, and this course will establish best practices for development lifecycle strategy and the use of premium features like deployment pipelines. Once Power BI content is deployed, it must also be accessible and discoverable. This course will examine processes for promoting and certifying Power BI content and configuring subscriptions so that content can be emailed to users at a defined frequency.

Transcript

Let's have a look at assigning workspace roles. From the power BI tenant we'll navigate to the workspace we just created called testing workspace. From this screen, there's a button called access. We'll click on that, which opens a menu. Since we created the workspace I'm automatically assigned as a workspace admin. To add other users, we simply enter their email addresses in the box provided and select the role type we would like to assign to that user. Importantly, these users must be within our organization's domain. In this particular case, this example is not. Once we've selected all the users and the role type for them, we'll click add and then close. And that's it.
