How to get URL for content pack

According to documentation, the URL for a content pack can be copied and sent (via email) to share with other users.  Can someone tell me where to find the content pack's URL? 

 

It seems like a dumb question but I've asked a lot of people and nobody seems to know.  In Power BI.com, you're either editing the content pack's definition, looking at a list of content packs, or viewing a list of all content available for a group (or MyWorkspace).  The browser is never "on" a content pack so you can't copy it from the address bar.

Re: How to get URL for content pack

1. Go to "Get Data"

2. Click "My Organization"

3. Click on your content pack and you should get a pop-up with a big "Connect" button, don't click that

4. Click on your browser URL field, it should be something like:

https://app.powerbi.com/groups/me/getdata/myorg/3dc208ae-d8d5-4504-af08-6276018cd7e1

5. Copy that

6. Paste to share in email

Re: How to get URL for content pack

This no longer works - since the content pack library was replaced with something called "app source" content pack URLs always take users to a page that says "app not found"

 

This needs to be addressed by the product team as it is not scalable to ask all your users to go to the content pack library, search for a content pack and connect. The previous method worked perfectly, not sure why they got rid of it.
