Power BI dataflow and shared dataset

I have two power bi workspaces , workspaceA and workspaceB . 
workspaceA shared a dataset from its workspace , and workspaceB add that shared dataset as one of the datasource of the dataflow created in workspaceB . Is it possible ?


and workspaceA and workspaceB are in different power BI region . 


shared dataset always consume capcatity power from the original workspaceA ?


actually shared dataset is a GA feature or Preview Feature ? is it only support Live connection only ?


Large Dataset also can be shared ?

Hi @globalmc 

Your questions are not quite understood, are you talking about Dataflow or Dataset? are you talking about sharing the same Dataset within the same organization? Large dataset! how large....


To make it simple : within the same organization a same dataset cannot be shared from the service between workspaces, you will need to republish it to workspaces from the desktop. 

From the Power bi desktop the Dev(role and permission) can acces the dataflow as well as the dataset to build his own reports(if that's how you want to call it sharing) and then he can republish it to another workspace .
