PowerBI Service: Information is needed in order to combine data

The automatic refresh in PowerBI does not work for me. The local refresh in PowerBI Desktop works.

I´ve already set all security levels to organizational, reloaded the data and uploaded a new report, also in a new workspace. Nothing works. Please help me.

Hey Charlotte, Hey Ibendlin! 

 

Thanks for your replies. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of setting the privacy levels in the PowerBi file in PowerBI Desktop and not in the online service. After I switched the privacy levels to organizational for the automatic update in PowerBI Service, it worked.

 

Best regards, Alex

Hi, @alexbachler 

 

When I made an internal inquiry, ICM 252542527 showed that the reason was similar:
"Issue is caused due to a regression when a feature switch'EimInformationProtectionExcelDataSourceInheritance,EimInformationProtectionExcelDataSourceInheritanceForPremium' was enabled."

 

Now the function has been disabled and can be used normally.

 

This is the relevant document, hope to help you:

which data sources are you combining in your Power Query?  Is that something you can do in the data model instead?
