Tag reports and dashboards with roles

If you want only users with a specific role to be able to access a shared report or dashboard, you can tag it with the name of the desired role.

You can tag only reports or dashboards that you own. To become the owner of a report or dashboard shared with you, copy it (see Copy a report or dashboard).

NOTE   If the role does not include access to Data Explorer, a tagged dashboard becomes the default homepage for people with this role.See Give users access to Data Explorer.

Prerequisites

  • Data Explorer permission—gives you read-only access to the Data Explorer asset browser page
