Link more than one Power BI Workspace in Azure Synapse Analytics

Let’s call it by accident, that I found out that Azure Synapse Analytics now let’s you to link more than just one Power BI workspace.. There is an entry in the Release notes/Update menu that lists this option.

The past: limit to only one linked Power BI Workspace

In one of my previous blog posts, I referred and mentioned the limitation of having a maximum of one linked Power BI workspace…

The present: Link multiple Power BI workspaces

The process is the same as in the past – Open the Manage Hub in Synapse Studio – Linked Services – and add an additional workspace link.

There is already one Power BI workspace link
Add a new Power BI workspace link

Head over to the Develop Hub and refresh the Power BI section – et voila – there are two Power BI workspaces listed now!

Having multiple Power BI workspace links in Azure Synapse Studio

In my case, the option to add multiple Power BI workspace links is a really required one. In most of our projects – or in all of our projects – we are not only using one Power BI workspace! In the past, this required us to switch to another browser window to open the Power BI portal directly… not more…

Have fun – with the Power BI integration in Synapse Studio!
