Business value

Many Power BI creators have already implemented the use of workspaces as environments. With these workspaces already set up and in process, it'll now be very easy to shift the existing workspaces to a pipeline. With pipelines, the deployment process will be much faster and easier because it'll reduce the need for users to have Power BI Premium capacity permissions or create workspace permissions. Instead, they can just assign existing workspaces to all stages.

Feature details

Upon pipeline creation, users can choose whether to assign an existing workspace or create a new one for each stage. The pipeline will create the connections between the content in different stages to enable rule setting and content updates upon deployment.
