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