When one of the three of us on PBI Pro uses desktop to publish a report we can’t access it, including the creator. But if the report is emailed to me I can publish it just fine. In app.powerbi I can go to the dataset and “take over” and then everything is fine. The creator sees a message saying it can’t be refreshed because the credentials are invalid when going into app.powerbi to see the dataset. It feel like blowing away her account and then recreating it and starting over. Any thoughts?
Screenshots I cannot post unfortunately. What happens is one of the three of us with a PBI Pro login and has access to the particular workspace can download, edit, etc. she gets the data source error when publishing. But if she sends to me and I open and publish it works fine. I compared settings everywhere I could find and it seems everything is exactly the same. But there has to be a setting I’m unaware of that is stripping the credentials when she publishes. So this is different than the similar error people have seen regarding refreshes.
I came up with new thoughts about this question, you mentioned that "it can’t be refreshed because the credentials are invalid when going into app.powerbi to see the dataset", the error typically happens when the credentials of the dataset been changed.
You can do a test on the desktop, connect to the data source and manually refresh it, if it failed, please clear the datasource setting and relogin.
If it still doesn't work, please kindly share the error details when "she gets the data source error when publishing."
