Cannot load model error in Power BI Service using SSAS



I have two reports having same datasource configuration (both the reports uses SSAS Datamodels) and I have two users: User-1 and User-2.


User-1 is an administrator for the gateway. User-1 owns the workspace and has made User-2 an Admin of the workspace.


I have uploaded both the reports in the workspace, here is what I see:


User-1 can see both the reports (Report1 and Report2), while User-2 can see Report1 successfully and gets the following dialog box for Report2:IAA Error.JPG




Both the databases used in report are setup in Data Source Settings in Power BI Gateway. 


I cannot understand why we are getting the above error. Any help would be grateful.


Thanks in advance.

Re: Cannot load model error in Power BI Service using SSAS

HI @rajulshah,


Can you confirm user2 has enough permission to view both two SSAS datasource?

You can add measures with USERNAME, USERPRINCIPALNAME function to check current user account if he can mapping the SSAS user roles which you configured on databased side.


If this is a case, you can try to turn on 'map user name' features:
