Azure — Reuse Power BI dataflows

  • Add “Reader” role to your storage account for the Power BI Service.
  • Create Blob Container to save the dataflow content.
  • Allow Power BI and Power Query to access the content in the Blob Container.
  • Connect your Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 to Power BI
  • Role “Owner” in the Azure Subscription (service administrator / classic administrator) to add an ADLS Gen2 storage account. This is also required to give the Power BI Service access to the storage account and Blob Container.
  • Global Administrator in O365 or Azure Active Directory to connect your ADLS Gen2 storage account with dataflows. This has to be done in the Power BI admin portal. The role Power BI Service Administrator is not sufficient to perform those actions.
