Multiple Audiences for Power BI Apps

Microsoft announced the public preview of Multiple Audiences in the Power BI Apps, one of the highly requested features from the community.

With multiple audiences for an App, now Power BI App author can create multiple audience groups within the same App and assign different permissions to each group.

Prior to this feature, to create multiple Apps for different audiences, the App authors had to set up different workspaces to register Apps for each audience. This workspace level isolation resulted in content duplication and operational overhead for the App Authors.

With this new capability, the authors can decide which content artifact such as reports, dashboards, etc. should be shared with specific audience groups within an App using a single workspace. This allows fine-grained access permissions for the App consumers who can consume various artifacts in the App based on their group permissions and minimizes operational overhead for the App authors.
