Rename a shared data source

I've created a content pack with a datasource that was created from a dataset of a Power BI Gateway


I've shared this dataset with a couple of users.


For them to use the dataset, they need to make a copy.


This then creates a copy of the data set called - Data set name - Copy


How can the user or the administrator change the name of this data copied data set?

Re: Rename a shared data source

I haven't seen a way to rename a dataset. You must delete the dataset and recreate it with the new name. It might be better practice if the same dataset is re-used rather than copied if at all possible. The other option is to create a template with the dataset already connected in the template.
