@NeilBarrett, Your case is very strange, I honestly don't know whats causing this difference. Have you tried to create a new workspace to see if the same issue occurs there?

Re: Power BI service Dataflows ownership - Who can edit?

take ownership for Dataflow, are not possible, with bring you own storage Enabled. (No Button)

 

This is very very bad, we are a big company, enabled “bring you own Storage” and now I am the only on for our Dashboard System, how can edit Dataflows. Bevor we enabled bring you own storage, everybody can press the button “take ownership” and edit the Dataflows. Microsoft, wenn you will fix this?

Possible Workaround:

Download Dataflow in JSON format, rename it in JSON and Import it in PowerBI online

 

Steps:

1. Right Click on Dataflow you want to download

2. Click on Export as JSON

3. Rename Dataflow in JSON file -- after opening JSON file you will see a tag 'name' modify its value -- basically update dataflow original name.

4. Set allowNativeQueries":false, you may also need to set fastCombine":false

5. Save file and Upload it again

6. Now you become owner of newly uploaded dataflow which infact is a copy of original dataflow.

 

Please accept it as solution or vote for it if it works for you.

 

It worked fine for me.

 

Thanks
