REST API Add Group User PowerBIEntityNotFound

Hi there! 

 

I am currently working with Add Group User from PBI REST API and found an issue when calling the API by iterating a list of workspaces in:

 

POST https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/{groupId}/users

 

Somehow, it runs properly with certain Workspaces, but it fails with others and showing below error. Failing workspaces has similar properties than the others than run Ok.

 

Failure happened on 'Source' side. ErrorCode=RestSourceCallFailed,'Type=Microsoft.DataTransfer.Common.Shared.HybridDeliveryException,Message=The HttpStatusCode 404 indicates failure. Request URL: https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/XXXXXXX/users Response payload:{"error":{"code":"PowerBIEntityNotFound","pbi.error":{"code":"PowerBIEntityNotFound","parameters":{},"details":[],"exceptionCulprit":1}}},Source=Microsoft.DataTransfer.ClientLibrary,'

 

Any idea why this is happening?

 

Thanks!!

Well if you have configured the Service Principal as admin. Like this:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/admin/read-only-apis-service-principal-authentication

Then you can just use the Admin Requests of the API instead of that one from group. That will let you use any workspaces without added the Service Principal as Admin in the workspace.

I hope that helps

Hi. Just to be sure. Is the account you are using to authenticate added as Admin in all of the workspaces? that request will only work for the workspaces that the connected user is admin.

If you have an admin account and you don't want to be added in all of the workspaces you can use the admin section request for that. It should be this one: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/admin/groups-add-user-as-admin

I hope that helps,

Hi @ibarrau

 

Thanks for the response. Regarding your question, I am trying to add a Service Principal to all workspaces and this is already authenticated as PBI admin. Hope this helps.
