Usage Metrics Report dataset has invalid relationship for Users table



We are experiencing an issue with the new Usage Metrics Report dataset. We have a direct query to this dataset to pull the usage metrics into custom usage report that we have built. 


From Feb 16th onwards, we are getting the below error while querying the dataset.

"The query referenced column 'Users'[UniqueUser] which depends on another column, relationship or measure that is not in a valid state"

Snapshot of the error:



This is happening in two of our workspaces, however the usage models on all other workspaces do not to have this problem.

We have the same problem!

The usage metrics report is showing the exact same error message, and in the graphics it is not showing any data at all.

The "old" version is still working, but it is not showing the users to me (although I am the tenant admin and have assigned myself the right to see the users).

Any news about this issue?

Hi @KrishnaPaudel 


If it is working in other App Workspaces I would think to log a support ticket to see why this is happening?
