Power BI APP throwing permission error for the first time users
We have developed a report and pushed to report workspace which consumes a dataset from Power BI service dataset in other workspace (dataset workspace). Then published an APP from the report workspace and auto installed for some set of users. For the same users given read access to dataset from dataset workspace(don't want to give build permissions to users).
I shared the APP link with the users. They are getting the below error for the first time when they access the APP link. When they refresh the page, APP is laoding properly.
What would be the reason of this behavior and what is the fix?
Thank you for the reply. I enabled auto install feature and shared the APP url directly to the end users. To your point yes they all are first time Power BI users.
For the first time when user opens the URL it is asking for login and post login it is throwing the error that they don't have permission (attached the screenshot in the main query). When user refresh s the page APP is rendering.
Do all users who view reports have power Bi Pro license?
For appconsumers, there are two options.
Option 1The workspace for this app isnotin a Power BI Premium capacity: All business users need Power BI Pro licenses to view your app.
Option 2The workspace for this appisin a Power BI Premium capacity: Business users without Power BI Pro licenses in your organization can view app content. However, they can't copy the reports, or create reports based on the underlying datasets
Is RLS present on the shared dataset?
Adding the user as the viewer of the workspace,they can view the report of the app.

It's the "refresh the page" part that is confusing me.
How are you granting permissions to the app -- did you select entire org or enter individual emails? For the App permissions screen below, exactly how are you filling this out?
You write that you "enabled auto install feature and shared the APP url directly to the end users".... so you did both of these things? Did the users experience the same problem whether they used the auto-installed version of the app AND when they used the link?
