I had published report and dataset to my organizational workspace, but i am not able to connect to the same dataset from
Get Data/ Powerbi/Power Bi dataset (nothing is visible). i am on Pro trial version currently. If i publish to my workspace, the datset is visible, but not from my organizational workspace
I am the second user (report creator) having build, reshare permissions. what might be missing to get the dataset on power bi desktop?
I seem to have the same issue. Until yesterday, I was using live connection for multiple dashboards, referencing a dataset I published in the same workspace succesfully. However, I lost my pro licence from the organization and am back on a pro-trial version. Now I found out that I could not open any of the .pbix files with live connection anymore, stating that the 'dataset is unavailable'. Indeed, when I create a new .pbix file and look for datasets to connect with I can only view datasets in 'My workspace' or other manually created workspaces. The workspace that contains the dataset I want to connect to is not visible anymore, nor are any of the other workspaces which have a link with MS Teams.
Luckily I was able to open the reports again by swapping the connection file to a duplicate version of the dataset published to my workspace, but this is of course not the preferred way to go.
Anybody able to say if this is due to the pro-trial version? Or is there something else going on?
Hi @jjohnson1990 ,
Here's the limitations-and-considerations for live connection to Power BI dataset.
I did some test but didn't find any problem. By the way, what's your organizational workspace?

Hello @v-jayw-msft ,thanks for replying back.
The organization workspace is called Jazeera airways and I am not the owner of the workspace, however I created and uploaded the report and the dataset. I do indeed have build access.
One point made was that I am Pro trial user. Is that why I cannot see the dataset uploaded to organization workspace when trying to connect as get data in power bi desktop
