Power BI Embedded Status API tracks workspace assignment to capacities
Posted on 17 January 2019
The Status API for Power BI Embedded checks the current assignment status of a workspace to a capacity (for example, CompletedSuccessfully). Checking the Status API is useful for:
- Multi-geo for compliance: When you are assigning a new workspace to a capacity in a different region than your home tenant, moving all the data in the workspace might take time. This API call can help you check the status of this operation.
- "Zero downtime" capacity scale: If you use the script we published last month, checking if the workspace has been moved between capacities can be helpful to make sure users have content available at all times, during scale-up, scale-down or pause.
