This is only affecting pre installed tempate apps and updated pre installed template apps,

Hi @BMG001 

After testing, if I change the dataset name in the Power BI service, it shows an error, so check the dataset and if its name has changed or if it has been deleted or moved, make sure you have access to the dataset and check if you have lost access to the dataset. Alternatively, you can try reconnecting to the model again.


Best Regards!

Thanks for the reply, 

yes no change to dataset name, newly installed template app and allso on old template app installed on a nother Tenant, same Issue even 2 diffrent template apps.


could you live connect to a template app?  this app is IP protected so you cant download the pbix.

but Excel and PBIX live connections shoud hand have worked fine.
