Can't access Pro

I do have Power BI Pro account, but I am not able to access my workspace or publish updates to my reports. What should I do?


On Power BI desktop, when trying to publish I get an error 'Only users with Power Bi licenses can publish to this workspace'.


On Power BI service, I get a notification:

Permission required: You cannot see the content of this report because you do not have permissions to the underlying dataset. Please contact the dataset owner to request access.


Thank you

Hi @Anonymous, 


Did you try to publish a report to an app workspace or My Workspace? If it is an app workspace, please check if you indeed have edit permission on the content within this app workspace. 


Regarding the error message "PERMISSION REQUIRED: YOU CANNOT SEE THE CONTENT OF THIS REPORT BECAUSE YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSIONS TO THE UNDERLYING DATASET. PLEASE CONTACT THE DATASET OWNER TO REQUEST ACCESS", it looks like the issue occurs when you open the report, right? Please contact the dataset owner, let him/her go to Manage Permission section of the dataset to assign you Read permission on the dataset. See:


Best Regards,
