Can't share report outside my organization

In Power BI Service, when I try to share a report with a user outside my organization, I receive the error message below. The problem happens with different email addresses and has persisted for at least a few weeks, possibly always. Note that I am a Global Admin and have enabled external access for the tenant. External guest users can also edit and manage content in the organization.

Re: Can't share report outside my organization

Thanks @v-lili6-msft . This link explains well how to distribute Power BI content to external users as a global admin. 

 

However, even after making these changes, I was unable to distribute content. The article below explains further configuration changes to my organization's Azure tenant that were needed. Now it is working.

Select ‘Manage external collaboration settings’ under External Users. The field ‘Members can invite’ needs to be toggled on.
