Hi @Controller_CVL 

 

There are limitations for downloading a PBIX, once of them is if there is incremental refresh happening on your dataset and you uploaded this PBIX you will not be able to then download the PBIX.

 

Here are details on the limitations, please have a look and see if any of these apply?

 

Download a report from the Power BI service to Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Docs

Hi @Controller_CVL ,

 

Did the documentation provided by GilbertQ solve your problem?

  • To download the PBIX, you need Edit access to the report and dataset.
  • The report you're downloading must be published or updated after November 23, 2016. You can't download reports published earlier than that.
  • This feature won't work with reports and the built-in downloadable samples originally created in the Power BI service, unless the report was created through the quick create experience.
  • Reports created in the Power BI service must be saved before they can be downloaded.
  • If your administrator has turned off the ability to download data, this feature won't be visible in the Power BI service.
  • Datasets with incremental refresh can't be downloaded to a PBIX file.
  • Datasets enabled for large models and the reports created from these datasets can't be downloaded to a PBIX file.
  • Downloading a PBIX file after deployment isn't supported as part of the deployment pipeline (ALM).
  • Usage metric reports can't be downloaded to a PBIX file.
  • Datasets modified by using the XMLA endpoint can't be downloaded to a PBIX file.
  • If you create a Power BI report based on a dataset in one workspace and publish to a different workspace, you and your users won't be able to download it. The download feature is not supported in this scenario.
  • You can only download the original report. You can't download a copy of a report.
  • If you download a live connection report (connected to SSAS or AAS) after changing its data source by using REST APIs Update Datasources or Update Datasources In Group, the downloaded PBIX will still contain the old data source.
  • If you download the .pbix file multiple times, the SecurityBindings file section in the .pbix file changes each time. This is by design.

If this does not solve your problem, please provide more information such as data source type,connection mode, and so on the process of creating the PBIX.

@GilbertQ  Thanks for the answer,

 

I thought so, however, this report does not have an incremental update and another one that does, I can download normally, shouldn't it be the other way around?
