APP : Paginated report unable to connect data source

We are experiencing with Power BI APP.
Paginated reports are deployed in the workspace and pointing to a power bi dataset from same workspace.
And Apps are published to the entire organization.
These paginated reports are accessible thru workspace, the user who are not part of workspace finding trouble accessing report using APP (Error: There was an error communicating with Analysis Services. Please verify that the data source is available and your credentials are correct. The connection either timed out or was lost)

@nvenkata ,


Please refer to the limitations below:

  • Pinning report pages or visuals to Power BI dashboards. You can still pin visualizations to a Power BI dashboard from an on-premises paginated report on a Power BI Report Server or Reporting Services report server. See Pin Reporting Services items to Power BI dashboards for more information.
  • Document Maps.
  • Subreports and drillthrough reports. You may consider using URL parameters with paginated reports to achieve drillthrough scenarios, however.
  • Shared data sources and shared datasets.

Thanks for the response.


My paginated reports are in Power BI Premium workspace , still required to pin the reports?.

My concern not all paginated reports are causing data source issue. In paginated report data source pointed to the same workspace dataset.
