Multiple reports linked to one dataset failing to update

We have been using PowerBi for a few months.

We have a dataset modeled in Desktop which is published to PowerBi cloud.

The dataset successfull updates in PowerBI Online, and the automatic report linked to that dataset with the same name as the dataset also updates with no problems.

However all the 60 odd other reprots that are based on that core orginal report, but have different filters for our different branches are not updating at all.

 

1) Any thoughts on why this is?

2) How can I see what dataset a report is linked to?

 

Thanks

Re: Multiple reports linked to one dataset failing to update

Hi Brett,

 

To answer your #2 question, you can find out dataset to report relation by clicking on "Settings --> Manage Personal Storage". You will get a list that shows all the datasets along with its properties like the size of it, when was it last refreshed, the associated dashboards and reports.

 

Hope this is helpful.

Re: Multiple reports linked to one dataset failing to update

@brettlloydpayne Couple of ways you can do that,

 

1. Use pbix file that you would have developed for reports before publishing to find dataset that report uses.

 

2. When you would have published report, it would have been created with the same name for both report and dataset in power bi service. Unless you have changed dataset name in power bi service after publish.

 

 

I would look at first two options and determine that way. Hope it helps.

Re: Multiple reports linked to one dataset failing to update

Excellant, the answer to Q2 is bang on, and does help me confirm that all my multiple reports are linked t othe one data set.

 

We now need to understand the answer to Q1, and that is why are all the other reports we have created based on that one dataset and core report not updating in content as the coire data set updates. I have a worry its a Microsft bug with the latest release.
