Power BI Org content packs


Power BI is Generally Available today. One great feature in Power BI is Org content packs.

 

Content Pack is way for any company to distribute their own dashboards or reports to their users for consumption through an easy to discover content gallery.You no longer need to search your inbox for the email that you got with the link or invitation or simply not know content available in rest of the company. Content gallery ( Get Data -> My Organization) makes it super simple to discover all the BI content that you have access to in one place.

As a content creator, by packing your content as a content pack and putting it in the content gallery makes the content discoverable not just for the present but even for your future audiences.

You can create content packs with just reports or dashboards & reports. The datasets used by these reports and dashboards are automatically included.

Any Power BI Pro user can create an Org Content Pack and publish to Entire tenant or restrict to security group / office 365 group. Any Power BI Pro user can consume Org Content Pack.

Consumers can customize dashboards/reports without affecting other users/source.Consumers can’t modify the dataset, refresh dataset etc.

User level security flows through to On-premise AS. For imported datasets, content pack creator imports the data and schedules refresh using his/her credentials

Datasets could be in Group space or in My workspace.

  1. Darren Donhardt says:

    So is there a facility for oversight by central administration (such as IT dept).

    For example:

    1. If a content producer leaves the company, can the content ownership be transferred to another individual?

    2. If the content is found to be erroneous, can it be pulled down by a central IT dept?
