Live Connect without download of .pbix

Currently, the live connection to a dataset is coupled with the tenant setting of Export data. If you want to stop a user from downloading a .pbix dataset, you must disable export. Doing so disables the functionality to connect live to the dataset and create a report from Power BI Desktop.

The idea is to have a permission set that allows for connecting live to a dataset without being able to download a .pbix. This would allow you to protect your .pbix from being downloaded but allow users create reports from it. The goal is to protect the “source code”/intellectual property built into a dataset.
