Issue opening the PowerBI report PBI file - fails with exception "This file is restricted".

Hi Team,

Suddenly PBI files I was working on yesterday, don't open today on my desktop. When I try to open the file it fails with exception that "This file is restricted". These files were labled Confidential\Microsoft Extended from the beginning and are existing reports that, being a vendor I was able to work on the changes. I have an existing access to the workspace to upload and download the file. And I used to work normally until yesterday.

 

Any new changes rolled out if any seem to be blocking. Could you suggest help a way out to be able to work on the PBI file changes?


Error that I'm getting while opening the file

Hi @JohneyB,

 

May I know what’s your Power BI Desktop version? Is this issue happening on a specific report or all the reports applied sensitivity labels?

 

Please trouble with these official documents firstly.

Sensitivity labels from Microsoft Purview Information Protection in Power BI - Power BI | Microsoft ...

Known issue - Unable to open protected Power BI Desktop file - Power BI | Microsoft Docs

Hi Caiyun,

 

Thanks for looking. All the reports that were having Confidential\Microsoft Extended, I was not able to open. Same reports, I was able to open before. Below the desktop version.

 

So, today I do not see this issue any more. I have no clue what the reason for failure yesterday.

VPN was connected, I tried restart yesterday but did not work. Today everything is normal.
