 What are the method to hide and unhide a specific report in Power BI ? 

Here are the methods to hide and unhide a specific report in Power BI, depending on the environment:

1. Power BI Desktop:

  • Hiding:

  • Right-click the report tab in the workspace.

  • Select "Hide" from the context menu.

  • Unhiding:

  • Go to the "View" tab in the ribbon.

  • Click "Hidden Reports."

  • Select the report you want to unhide and click "Unhide."

2. Power BI Service (App Workspaces):

  • Hiding:

  • Access the workspace where the report is located.

  • Click the "More options" ellipsis (...) next to the report.

  • Choose "Hide" from the menu.

  • Unhiding:

  • Click the "Hidden items" button in the workspace navigation pane.

  • Locate the hidden report and click "Unhide."

3. Power BI Service (My Workspace):

  • Hiding:

  • Currently, there's no direct way to hide reports in My Workspace.

  • Workaround: Move the report to a separate workspace or delete it.

  • Unhiding:

  • Not applicable for My Workspace.

Additional Considerations:

  • Permissions: To hide or unhide reports in App Workspaces, you'll need appropriate workspace permissions.

  • Content Packs: Reports within content packs can't be hidden individually.

  • Bookmarks: Hiding a report doesn't affect its bookmarks.

  • Search: Hidden reports won't appear in search results.

Important Note:

  • Power BI Admins can now hide reports for everyone in a workspace using PowerShell commands. This feature is not yet available in the Power BI Service interface.
