Workspace Performance Difference

This is a general question related to a corporate deployment seeking experience with a similar situation.

In our corporate environment, we have Power BI Desktop and Pro (no premium). We can publish to our personal workspace or shared workspace. The shared workspaces are created by a Power BI support team and access is restricted to others in the same corporate structure.

We have a data intense Power BI workbook with filters and drop downs (the filter pane is not used). The workbook published to a personal workspace has the same functionality as the desktop. However, when the workbook is published to a shared workspace, the filters do not work the same and all data options are not presented. Even for the same user.

We engaged the corporate Power BI support team and they cannot determine the cause. It seems to me, it must either be an environment issue or data access issue. I am looking for input if anyone has had a similar scenario. Thank you.

Bumping this post for more visibility from our experts and users.

Hi @DianaWill - I have never faced such issue. Can you elaborate what is not working in Shared workspace. It shall ideally be same in both.

Due to confidential data restrictions, it is difficult to share much. There is no error message. The issue is, the filters do not work properly in the shared workspace, even for the same user. So, access rights does not seem to be the cause. We resolved the issue by changing approach. We no longer sync the filters across all pages. The sync works in My Workspace but not in the shared Workspace, for the same user. I was hoping someone had seen a similar issue and could give insight to the cause. Thank you!

HI @DianaWill

You can follow this to mask your confidential information so you can provide a power bi file.
