Hi @seansskim2 

  Ypu do not have admin rights, thats why you are unable to see the settings. Please request your Power BI admin to enable the below property.

Tenant Settings -> Integration settings -> Map and filled map visuals property.

I originally started with a bi free subscription before getting the pro. I can't remove the free subscription. Could this have some impact on this? I'm dying here because my maps have gone away. This is infuriating! LOL happy friday.

I have a 5 tenant license and I can access the admin page but there is no link to tenant. None of the other 4 users has that access either. 

 

What gives?

Hello.

Sorry but this is not solved.

I have tried the suggested solution and as a single powerbi pro user, the options you point to does not exist. When I go to the suggest page, this is all I see

I have drilled into every link on every page and the options you have suggested simply do not exist.

 

I cannot contact my admin because as a sole user, I am admin.

 

Am not sure where to go from here. Is this a bug or does the map simply not work for single pro users?

 

Thank you.

Sean did you work this out.  The default advice is "you are not admin" but I am a single Pro user so I have no admin and canot see where to chnage this setting.

Same situation here. The full answer would have been:

Go to https://app.powerbi.com/admin-portal/tenantSettings

If you are the admin, you will see Tenant Settings -> Integration settings -> Map and filled map visuals property.

This is the answer if the link will bring up the Power BI Admin portal for you.  I struggled trying to find the Admin page which is not easily reached and only got there by using this link.

Hi Bob,

 

I have exactly the same problem as you, did you succeed now? 

I am a single user on a pro licence.  The advice of contact your power BI admin is not much use as I assume I am Power BI admin.  Where do I chnage this settings?

@rajendran , I am using the trail version. At whom I have to contact to enable to settings? And also sometimes map is showing. Whenever I close and reopen the report, the map is getting disabled.

 

For those that are a "single user" (i.e., effectively, should be your own Power BI admin) , you need to open your Azure Portal and assign the Power BI admin role to a user account that will access the Power BI Admin Portal.

This is what worked for me:

  • Go to your Azure Portal
  • Open Azure Active Directory resource
  • Select "Users", then select a user, which should upon the user's profile page
  • Select Assigned Roles on the left
  • Select Add Assignments, then find and add the Power BI admin role from the list that appears
  • Finally, logout and back into the Power BI admin portal with the assigned user account, and you should now see all settings under Tenant settings

Dear Raj,

May I know who is the Power BI Admin in this case, as I am only currently one person using Power BI Service as a Premium User.

Hi Rajendran,

When I get into my admin portal, I got this screen;

Why I don't get the proper admin portal?

Previously, my map visuals worked fine until recently I got this issue of:

                                   Map Visuals aren't enabled

Your help is much appreciated!

BR,

Bob

Did you ever resolve this?

Nope.
