Can't take over my own datasets



When i logon to PowerBI in the top right corner it shows me logged on as but when i go to my datasets they are listed as owned by and it offers me to "Take over" the configuration. When i click "Take over

nothing happens - the dataset stays owned by and i can't change it.


This started happenning just recently.

This workaround worked for me as a temporary solution.

I tried to refresh the page once in the dataset settings page and it allowed me to make the changes that I needed. As soon as I navigate to any other dataset I lose again the ability to change the settings.

I hope this helps.

Same problem for me and the rest of my organization


Same issue here.


I just published a brand new report and dataset, and it immediately used Easy ID.

I am also facing this issue

I think I have the solution.

In my case - what solved the issue is this:

I have uploaded a dataset to My Workspace (instead of the Workspaces I usually work with)

And suddenly I could control the dataset in those other Workspace

Also - try to delete and re-publish a dataset, but I feel that uploading into My Workspace did the trick

Good luck!

Happy to provide more details to help to debug.

Same issue for me. Even uploading a new report won't solve the issue.

I'm also experiencing the same issue.


Hi @vitru,


How about the result if you remove this Dataset and re-publish it to service?


I was not able to reproduce this problem on my side. For this issue, you could create a support ticket for further analysis or ask for internal support.


By the way, @vitru @aacrawfi please do mask your personal information including email accounts on forum.

I am seeing this issue as well. You can only repro if you have an email address with a first.last@... UPN. It seems Power BI sees the owner as different (user logged on with short name, and UPN is listed in the owner for the data set). I did remove and republish several times with different names. Also worked with someone who does not have a first.last@... UPN and he did not have the issue.



Same for me,


Cannot afford to recreate the sets since they are published into an application.

Need resolution since the dataset is currently not being refreshed,'

Same issue for me.


I cannot afford to delete the reports and recreate them since they are published within an application it would be expansive.

Same thing is happening to me. Says dataset is owned by "", but I'm logged in as Clicking take control does nothing.



did you get anywhere with this?


I am also facing the same issue.

They pushed an update on 1/16 that fixed this. My dataset still uses Easy ID as the displayed owner, but it now recognized that I am the owner. I am now able to manage the dataset settings again.


Create a support ticket if you're still having issues, and reference the previous incident INC17475025.

Thanks. It seems to be resolved today so perhaps IT pushed the update for my organisation too.



Many thanks jsh121988.


Do you mean an update at the Power BI Service level or the Desktop app?
