Couldn't publish to Power BI

Hello, our users are currently receiving this error message when trying to publish a report; all relevant access and permissions are correct, no variables have changed since being able to publish prior to today. Can you please look into this or can anybody help?

This also occurs when publishing a dataset but if you change the owner to the current user they can then publish the dataset, however other users with correct permissions should be able to publish the dataset without being the 'owner'.

Hi @rappleton 

The report you published to Service is a new report or it already exists on the Service, then you repubish it to replace the old one ? In addition to this report, can other reports be published to the Service ? Does the user who publishes the report have the corresponding workspace permission ?

Hi Ailsa, 

It is a current report which I am replacing. Other reports can be published on the service if they are new reports. Yes the user who publishes the report has the corresponding workspace permissions. 

Kind regards,

Hi again, just to update you, if I delete the report and then publish it works, I can then publish an iterative version straight away. 

Kind regards,

The only issue with this is monitoring usage statistics if the report is deleted and then published under the same name, presumably it will think it is a brand new report rather than an iteration? 

This issue is having a big impact across our business, is there an update at all?

Thank you,

Just to update everyone, I have spoken to an engineer and we have not yet been able to find the cause of the issue but have found a workaround. 

If you are struggling to publish from desktop with the same issue, if you upload your PBIX file from the Power BI service that should work, and following that you should be able to publish from desktop again (and replace previous versions etc).
