How to access Data Flows in Power BI Desktop which are created in different domain?

Hi,

Here is my use case:

User A belongs to Company X and has Power BI Pro account. He is added as gast user in Compay Y AAD.

User A loing to Power BI Portal via Compay Y Client Specific URL, where he can access the Gateway which is running under Company Y account (To access the Gateway and datasource was the reason to add User A in Company Y ADD).

User A creates a DataFlow in Power BI Srevice by accssing Data Source via Gateway.

Now user A login to Power BI Desktop with his Company X account and try to access the DataFlows created in Power BI Service. User A couldn't access the DataFlows, how can he access them?

 

Any suggestion to solve this problem is much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Tahir

theres no way at this momment for external users to use datasets on another tenant that they are user, they can only be sharing with them scenarios but no access for them to the dataset itself, 

you do can try to make a multi tenant single azre tenant that consolidate the information between diferent tenants and them use that azure conection as a source:

but no way to do directly as you intented to do, no at the momment.

Dear StefanoGrimaldi,

Thanks for your reply.

Is there a simple workaroud of this problem apart form your suggestion multi tenant single azre tenant.

I would I am not the only one who have this use case, it seems pretty common.

Does it have to do something with Licensing; that this doesn't work with Pro License but works with Premium?

Thanks,

Tahir

nothing to do with license it just a feature not on the service at the momment, you could render a suggestion for a chance or developmente of it if it have enought vote microsoft might consider working on this:
