Re: CANT USE APP IN POWER BI DESKTOP

Hi @allmightBI ,

 

In power bi service, apps are divided into third-party apps and custom apps by users. When you use third-party apps, you cannot download reports in it and use them in power bi desktop. When you use custom apps by users, you should have edit permission and the admin has turned on the ability so that you can download and use reports in power bi desktop.

 

For further information about download reports, you can refer the following Microsoft document that can help you:

Re: CANT USE APP IN POWER BI DESKTOP

Which appsource app are you connecting to?

 

Appsource contains content packs created by owner of that data, so you are actually looking at predefined PowerBI reports created by their dev team. 

 

What exactly do you want to do? There are many options and the answer depends on your goal. Do you want to use the same data as shown in the app from appsource, but in desktop so you can create your own report?

 

Does this microsoft document help? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-connect-to-services

Re: CANT USE APP IN POWER BI DESKTOP

Thanks for the quick answer,

 

The app is Microsoft project web app,  as you said i want to use the same data as shown in the app from appsource, but in desktop so i can create my own report.

in other words, im trying to use the template (models), but all with my own data. all i want to do in desktop.

 

is that possible? or i have to build it from zero (0).

 

thanks a lot!
