Unable to export to Power BI Desktop (.pbix) format

Hi,
 
I'm having trouble exporting my Power BI Desktop report as pbix format from Power BI Service.
I created and uploaded the report from Power BI Desktop. I also have edit access to the report from Power BI Service. Here are the technical details:

Activity ID 96da0f0c-12c8-f39a-384e-28a83d255952
Request ID b91a9f2e-e786-3e85-21c7-8323d48d4f3a
Correlation ID c8e78da6-a7ed-fc2b-a4ef-2e4ac3514c02
Status code 500
Time Tue Mar 27 2018 09:46:42 GMT+0700 (SE Asia Standard Time)
Version 13.0.4759.170
 
Any ideas on what might be causing the problem?

Could I ask the question if you still have the local copy?

Yes, I still have the local copy.

Could I then ask why you are trying to download the PBIX file from the Service?

My colleague wants to edit the report via Power BI Service, then download it as a pbix. But it didn't work because the report was not downloadable, even before edit.

That does not seem normal. Possibly if he was a member of the App Workspace, and then App Workspace was set to ReadOnly for Members?

But my colleague has edit access to the report. It's just that when she tried downloading the report, it failed with the above error message.

Then when I tried to diagnose the problem, it turns out that the report is also not downloadable before any edit was done.

I would suggest re-uploading the report and then trying to download it again

Re: Unable to export to Power BI Desktop (.pbix) format

Hi, I've actually tried that a few times since the past few days. I also tried deleting each visual one-by-one to see whether any kind of visual might be causing the problem. But the issue still occurs even after emptying the whole dashboard.

 

Just thinking out loud...

  1. Are there any other causes besides the limitations mentioned here?
  2. Is there any way I can narrow down the cause of this issue by referring to the technical details?

Hi there, when you talk about the dashboard is this the Power BI Dashboard in the Service, or the report pages in Power BI desktop.
