Quick insights admin/build permission issue



I am having an issue trying to access the Quick insights function on a dataset. The option is greyed out, and when I hover over the option the message "To use Quick insights, request the build permission from the author".


The problem is that I am myself the author, and then I navigate to the "Manage permissions" page for the dataset, I am listed with the "Administrator (Owner)" permission. I am not able to grant myself any additional permissions.


Many thanks

Did you import data to the report? Quick Insights only works with data uploaded to Power BI. See:


Did you use any feature in the report? Based on my test, if the report uses RLS, the Quick Insights will be greyed out.

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft 


Thank youf or your reply.


I use import mode for this dataset. The quick insight functionality used to work, last time I used it was around a month ago, which is why I don't believe it's the storage mode that is the issue.


Hi @MarieAng


Did you use any other features in the report? For example, RLS which is mentioned in my previous post.
