Re: Cannot Publish to power bi service

Hi  @ahsankhawaja,

 

From your description, If I understand your scenario correctly that you publish the report to the app workspce you created with Premium in Power BI Service, but you get an error?

 

Have you publish the report to that app worksapce successfully before? Do you have this error for other app workspace ?

 

Do you have edit access to this app workspace? Please check if you're the Admin of this app workspace?

Re: Cannot Publish to power bi service

NewWS.PNGerror.PNGAs explained earlier I am the one who created the workspace and I am Admin in workspace, Power BI Service and Power BI Premium Admin as well, if you create a workspace you automatically get added as Admin.

 

This workspace and all other are on Premium capacity, if I publish to "My Workspace" I don't get an error

 

This has got something to do with "New" workspace experience that Microsoft did couple of days ago and reports being published to premium capacity, it is coming up for all new workspaces created using new workspace experience.

 

This error, pops up but then report does gets published, but why is the error popping up ?

 

I have also noticed, if you created a workspace in old way i.e. when it uses office 365 groups, and then try to recreate the same workspace after deletion using new workspace experience, it does not even publish the report and give same error. the only solution was to recreate the workspace with some different name then old one.

 

Hope this explains.

Re: Cannot Publish to power bi service

Hi @ahsankhawaja,

 

Thanks for your details information. It seems that you have problems when you publish the report to the new app workspace (preview).

 

By my test with publishing a repot to the new app workspace (preview) configured with Premium in Power BI Service, I cannot reproduce your issue.

 

What data source do you connect?

 

You also could have a try with my test pbix which has been attached to check if you still have this issue? 

 

In addition, you could have a try Get Data in the new app workspace (Preview) to check if there is any error?

 

If you still have the error, you could trace Power BI with Fiddler.

 

 

Best Regards,

Hi @ahsankhawaja,

 

Have you tested with my test pbix I uploaded previous reply and check if it could publish to your new app workspace(Preview) successfully?

Re: Cannot Publish to power bi service

Hi Cherry,

@v-piga-msft

 

Yes it did published without error. so it got to be Azure Analysis Services (Connect Live) and new workspace experience (premium capacity)

 

To test again, I created a new PBIX getting with live connection to Azure Analysis Service, with just one chart on it and tried publishing, got same error Smiley Sad though file did got published but Power BI Desktop showes same error.

 

Kind Regards,

Ahsan

Re: Cannot Publish to power bi service

I am having the exact same issue.

 

On the web, I created a new app workspace (in preview), and of course I am listed as an admin.  On Power BI Desktop, i logged in with the same user, created a simple report with a Azure SQL DirectQuery dataset, and when I publish to this new workspace, i get the same error.  I tried creating a new workspace, logging in/out of web and desktop app, nothing has helped.  The odd part is that the report and dataset are actually published to the workspace, regardless of the error message.

Re: Cannot Publish to power bi service

I get this issue intermittently.  It seems to me that it only happens with a large model and that it may not be the 'correct' message.   I think it indicates that the request to publish times out since the publish normally completes on the second attempt.

Re: Cannot Publish to power bi service

I have the exact same issue and came here to see if anyone has a solution... In the past I've created ~10 workspaces and published to them a number of .pbix without any issues what-so-ever.. This is the only new workspace I've created using the new preview workspaces option.. Now I can't publish to it, as I'm getting: Sorry, you don't have access to publish to this workspace. Please contact the owner for access (ironic since I'm the owner...)   NOW after I get this message, I check and the dataset indeed get's published... So it's like a "fake" message.. But I'd like to understand why I'm seeing it and the way to fix it so it says "Published Successfully..

 

Here're some of the other tests I've tried:

1.) Added another developer with Admin rights - he gets the exact seam error in PowerBI Desktop (but ultimately we see the dataset does get published  (This is a direct connection dataset, if that makes a difference..)

2.) I've just tried to publish a different .pbix to this same "preview" workspace and got the exact same error, while this other .pbix published without any issues to a different workspace (that was crated before preview workpaces"

 

So in essense, the only diff. I can see that I created a Workspace using new "Prieview" workspaces... And it's not intermittent for us. Happens every single time we're publishing to this Workspace.  WHAT GIVES???   (I almost feel like maybe it publihes to PowerBI but fails on some other Office 365 process (maybe need permissions changed on something else within Off 365 suite?) 

 

Oh and we all have PowerBI Pro licenses.
