Upgrade classic workspaces to the new workspace experience


These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review What’s new and planned for business intelligence. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

In April 2019, we released the general availability of the new Power BI workspaces, which allowed you to:

  • Manage access using security groups, distribution lists, and even multiple Office 365 Groups.

  • Create a workspace in Power BI without creating an Office 365 group.

  • Effectively manage workspaces with tools and APIs for Power BI admins.

Now, we are enabling upgrade of existing classic workspaces to become new workspaces. Workspace and Power BI workspace admins will be able to opt in to upgrade their workspaces on demand.

At a later time, Power BI will require the upgrade of classic workspaces to the new workspace experience. This will not start until after all classic workspaces can be upgraded through opt-in.
