Get data from other Power BI Application



I have two app workspaces, In one I have some relevant information for a specific area on my organization (let's call it "Specific"), on the other I have some reports and a dashboard with general KPI (let's call it "Main").


I want to get some data from the Specific app for showing on the Main app, I tried using Content Packs but when I copy the dataset I cannot publish the "copied" visualizations and reports and if I put a visualization on the dashboard, I can't publish the dashboard. I tried making a report using the Power BI service as data source too, but when I publish the summary report that I want in Main, Power BI puts it in Specific.


I don't want to replicate the entire data set on the Main app because is huge and I have to schedule the updates again, etc.


Can I do this?.


Thanks in Advance.
