How to hide the Filter Pane in published version of Power BI Report?

Problem Statement:
We know that the Filters are very important feature of Power BI desktop. Sometimes, as a developer, we use the functionality of the filter at the visual level, page level, and report level to set the required business logic.

When we publish the Power BI report to the service, at that time, the Filter Pane is clearly visible to end-users. If the filter is not in the locked stage, then end-users can easily change the value of the filters which we have applied to set the business logic. This may spoil the data for the visualization we have configured.

In order to overcome this situation, we can hide the Filter Pane from the published version of the Power BI report. Now, let’s see how we can easily hide the Filter Pane from the Power BI Online/Service.

Step 1:
Open the Power BI Report in Power BI Desktop. When we create any Power BI report, the filter pane is opened in the right side of the screen.
Step 2:
To hide the Filter Pane from the published version of the Power BI Report, click on the Hide icon from the filter pane.

Once, we click on the “Hide” icon, the icon will be changed as shown in the following screen.

Step 3:
Publish the Power BI Report, the Filter Pane is now hidden from the Power BI Service.

This is how, we can easily hide the filter pane from the Power BI Online. Isn’t it amazing??
