Bug: Creating a report in service with dataset in different workspace results in no export option

Bug: Both the create new report (from dropdown option in workspace) and Save a copy (when saving from one workspace into a different workspace) methods for creating a new reports are resulting in a report which cannot be exported from the service when the published dataset the report is pointed to is in a different workspace. The export option in the file dropdown is greyed out and powershell export calls are not working either.

Hi @tomlinse ,

 

This is a known limitation on downloading reports as PBIX, you can check the following:

  • You can download a file in either Reading view or Editing view. You must be at least a Contributor to the workspace.
  • Reports created in Power BI Desktop must have been published or uploaded to the Power BI service before they can be downloaded.
  • Reports created in the Power BI service must be saved before they can be downloaded.
  • You can only download the original report. You can't download a copy of a report.

Hi @tomlinse ,

 

I couldn't reproduce your problem, I tested each of the two scenarios you provided and it worked fine for me.

Please contact your Power BI admin to confirm that the following settings are enabled.

@v-caitlyn-mstf  To clarify I am talking about the [File -> Download this file] option
