Re: Couldn't load the schema for the database model

Solved!  The reason why you are getting that error is because you sent a dashboard with "Pro" content to someone who does not have a "Pro" license.  https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-power-bi-pro-content-what-is-it/

As per the online documentation

You can’t share dashboards that contain Power BI Pro content with external users who have a Power BI Pro trial license. They need regular Power BI Pro licenses to access those dashboards. What is Power BI Pro content? 

 

As to the error, what tiles are in that dashboard? The errors seems specific for UPN mismatching when connecting to SQL Server Analysis Service.

Re: Couldn't load the schema for the database model

I have tiles from a SQL Server data source.  Please see the images below.  I have this data source setup as SQL Server.  I read the article on "Mapping the UPN".  There is nothing to map a UPN in powerbi.com.

Hi there, 

 

I have the same problem with my dashboard sharing with my client. Have you figure out how to solve this? Can anybody give a hint? I used SQL server as my data source and I did not see user map options either.

 

Thanks!

Re: Couldn't load the schema for the database model

I've been having the same issue with multiple dashboards I have shared with our clients, who are outside the organization.

 

In one case, the users had signed up for the free 60 day trial of Power BI Pro and get the message:

Couldn't Load the Schema for the Database Model.

 

In another case, the user's Power BI Pro trial expired, but they now have a subscription to Power BI Pro and still get the same error message (effectively, what appears to be a security issue from scanning other posts).

 

Some assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I am getting the same error with embedded reports using Azure AS. None of the solutions above are viable for me

Do your users have a Pro license?

I solved my problem. I guess you can't use embedded with Azure AS yet
