Re: Shared Datasets and underlying permissions

Absolutely. See below. I did see something in another forum about Microsoft having these permissions granted automatically at one point, but then switching it back to manual. I have not had any formal confirmation on that.

Re: Shared Datasets and underlying permissions

Yeah I am not sure either.

I do know if you share via the app, depending on what permissions were set when creating the app is how those users will be granted access.

Re: Shared Datasets and underlying permissions

Hi @taylorp84 ,

 

I have exactly the same issue. Do you already have a better solution then giving read access to the underlaying dataset in the other workspace to individual users?

Re: Shared Datasets and underlying permissions

Huh, me too. 

 

Trying to share with external users. 

Workspace 1 has the Dataset

Workspace 2 has a trimmed down copy of the report

Workspace 2 has an app, a group (of which these external users are a part), was given app access

Yet it keeps compalining about them not having access to the underlying dataset

Re: Shared Datasets and underlying permissions

I have not found anything better yet. It appears this is the best imperfect solution until Microsoft smoothens this out a bit.

Re: Shared Datasets and underlying permissions

Just curious not sure if anyone has tried this yet but if "Build Access" was granted via the App to a user - This would mean the user can build out their own reports via this "shared dataset".

 

So lets say user A has the dataset and shared it out with build access to user B. Lets say user B then shares it out to user C

 

Does user A need to grant "read permissions" to user C in order to see the underlying dataset?

 

Or does user B grant access to user C - Therefore user A has no clue beyond user B where the dataset is being spread out to?
