I am connected to 2 power bi datasets through Direct Query with the new Dec feature.
I have granted the users access to the app as usual.
The problem is that they can only see data from one of the data sets.
If I give them access to the workspace as members, then the visuals show up fine, but that's not what I want because now I cannot enable RLS with them being members of the workspace.
We are experiencing this same issue. We are not using RLS at all. We are testing out Using DirectQuery for Power BI datasets and Azure Analysis Services (preview).
We have DatasetA and DatasetB, both in WorkspaceX. And WorkspaceX is in Premium Capacity. We created a new "Test.pbix" file with a live, "Power BI datasets" connection to DatasetA; and a live, "Power BI datasets" connection to DatasetB. And we combined tables from the two datasets in a single data model in "Test.pbix"
It works in Power BI Desktop. I published "Test.pbix" to WorkspaceX, and I can view the report in the workspace. I added "Test" to the app in WorkspaceX and updated the app. I can go into the app and view the report, and it works. Also, everything works for other users who are members of WorkspaceX and have Pro licenses.
However, for our users who are not members of WorkspaceX and don't have Pro licenses...when they open the report in the app, they get an error on any visual that has data from DatasetA ("Can't display the visual"). But if the visual has data only from DatasetB, they can see it just fine.
I think the key answer to your issue is the link you provided, There are multiple limitations
Are you applying one of those limitation to Dataset A?
Another quetion that came to mind, are Dataset A and B connected via the same Gateway?
Yes, but what I meant was that I'm connected to 2 power bi datasets.
However, one of that datasets is giving blank visuals for users with view permission to the app.
If I give them access to the workspace as members, then the visuals work. I don't know why, but I don't want that because now RLS will not work because they're member of the workspace
Maybe you just forgot to manage security on your model .
Datasets->Security->Row-Level Security-> select one of the 'role' you create on PowerBI Desktop -> enter the Members' email addresses to assign the role
For more details , please refer to this document.
If you are using Dynamic RLS ,please recheck your \userprincipalname formats.

I don't think you guys are understanding my issue.
The problem is that I have reports connected to 2 power bi data sets ( Direct Query for Power BI Data Sets). My users have view access to the App. The visuals from 1 of the power bi datasets are not showing up in the service, but if I give them access to the workspace as memebers, then the visuals show up fine.
However, I don't want them to be members of the workspace. I just want them to have view access to the app.
