Can only publish report, which is linked to published PBI dataset, to same workspace

With the October release, there still seems to be a bug with pbix files which are linked to a published Power BI dataset.

From Power BI Desktop, you can only publish the report to the same workspace than the publishes Power BI dataset.


When uploading the same report via Power BI Service into another workspace, it works as expected. So this is the workaround you can apply for this issue.


With the September release, there was already an issue with pbix files linked to published Power BI datasets. Then you got an error saying that no workspace were found.

It seems that with the October release, the issue was only partially solved.


I hope this gets the attention of the Microsoft development team in order to tackle this with the November release.

Hi @v-shex-msft ,


You're right, apologies. It seems that the Power BI admin has disabled the option to use datasets across workspaces.

It was being disabled just before the October release...


Kind regards,

HI @BennyMagnus,

>>From Power BI Desktop, you can only publish the report to the same workspace than the publishes Power BI dataset.

I don' think this is a bug, it works as expected. When you work with the dataset from power bi service workspaces, you can only publish to the same workspace which the source data hosts. (it is the limitations for workspace dataset usages)

Manually publishing the report should be a workaround to force publish it to different workspaces, but it may face some issues or conflicts.
