Let me show you the step by step approach to Publish App in Power BI with a practical example. Before we start publishing the Power BI app, let me show you the existing dashboards in my Power BI workspace.
For this Publishing App in Power BI demonstration, we are using Sample Workspace. I suggest you refer to Create a Workspace article to understand the workspace creation.
Please click on the Power BI Sample Workspace, and then go to the dashboards tab to see the list of available dashboards. As you can see from the screenshot below, currently, there is only one dashboard in this workspace.
How to Publish App in Power BI
To publish App in Power BI, please click on the Publish App button on the top right corner, as we showed below.
Clicking the Publish App button opens the following Power BI window. Under the Details section,
- Description: Please provide a valid description of this App. It is a required field so, you have to fill something here.
- Background Color: Please select the background color of this App. By default, Green selected.
As you can see, we added the description and changed the App color to red.
Under the Content tab, specify the App landing page
- Specific Content: If you select this option then use the dropdown list to select the dashboard
- None: There is no landing page
Let me select the New dashboard as the landing page
Under the Access tab

For this publish app demo, we selected Specific individuals or groups and added Kishore.
Once you completed, please click the Finish button.
