How to see who has access to a shared report

Goodday,

 

I have a question regarding the Share button within Power BI online. When I have a report I want to share, I click the Share button and enter the e-mailadress of the user I want to add.

When I click the Share button I add for example user Justin and then click Send:

When I look at the Manage Permissions page I don't see Justin I just added (only myself):

Am I looking at the wrong place? Or do I miss something?

Many thanks in advance!

 

Kind regards,

Corné

You are looking in the right place. However, as you did not give him direct access and shared the report with him via a Link, Justin's name will not directly appear in the Manage Permission Tab. If you check the Links Tab, you should see the link for the report you shared. Anyone who has the link can access the report, however their name won't appear in the Direct Access Tab. If you Add a new user via the Manage Permissions tab then only the user will appear on the above screen.
