Build permission via App pubilshed to Entire Organisation not working as expected

Hi,

 

I am trying to follow the pattern of putting "gold" datasets in one workspace (GOLD-WS) and reports in another (REPORT-WS).

 

In GOLD-WS i published it as an App and during app publishing and chose to publish to ENTIRE ORGANISATION and ticked the box for BUILD permission.

 

However the report over in REPORT-WS will not work with my test user.

 

I added the test-user to the dataset directly with build permission and it then works.

 

There is something wrong with the combination of publishing to APP, secured to ENTIRE ORGANSIATION with BUILD.

 

Any ideas ?

 

My theory after reading @dbartel post : Solved: Live connection permissions - Published Apps - Microsoft Power BI Community) is that an App is not truly available until you access it once and in this pattern, users may never click into the App as its purpose is just to server up gold datasets.

Hi @frano72 ,

 

It is a known issue.  If you select Entire organization to Allow users to build new content using the underlying datasets, then no one in the organization will have Build permission.   Instead, specify email addresses in Specific individuals or groups. If you want your entire organization to have Build permission, specify an email alias for the entire organization.
