Unable to publish via app to client email address



I am new to powerBI and have prepared the report referring to Youtube video. I am having an issue while publishing the report via app. When i click on update app, it throws the below error message. "The following group have failed validation:". I am able to add my collegues email address but when I enter clients email address which has a different domain name, I get the error message.  I even tried to keep the report to unresticted.


Please advise.
