I see a different color in my powerbi desktop report and in the published report

When I open my powerbi desktop file the visualizations are brown, then I publish it, open the online report in my premium environment and the colors of the same visualization have changed! they are now purple!. I've seen people say this already happened in June 2020 and the bug was fixed, but I think the bug reappeared with the Dec 2020 update.


Any idea on how to fix it?

I cannot reproduce this issue with bar chart visual using excel datasource. Can you provide more information. For example, what datasource and which connection mode, which visual do you use (default or custom), etc. 


For now you can try set the data color in the panel.
