"Save a Copy" menu option not available

Some or our PRO users with Build permissions on a dataset are not able to see the menu option to 'Save a Copy' of a report.  This is in the new Workspace (we converted it).  They are 'Viewers', and have reshare permissions and Build, but the only option they can see is 'View Related'.

@sjs210 ,

 

It's normal, a viewer role has only read-access permission so the user with viewser role couldn't make a copy. You can also refer to doc: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-the-new-viewer-role-for-power-bi-workspaces/

@v-yuta-msft  Thanks Jimmy, but I found the solution by publishing to an App. 

In Apps, the build permission does allow users with Viewer role to copy reports to other workspaces.
