this morning i have modified one of my datasets with the desktop version and after i saved the modifications i published the dataset to the webversion. Before closing the desktopversion, i got the message: "publishing is complete. However we couldn't refresh your dataset". Did a manually refresh with the desktop version which went well, but if i go to the web, i can run "refresh now" but nothing happens. Tried a different dataset and the strange thing is that i managed to update this dataset but others didn t update as well (it does not give any error messages and does not show that you have started a refresh on demand...). Checked the on-prem gateway with the most recent version and they both seems to be the same (both have version 14.16.6584.1)....
Any ideas what to do???
thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have the same issue, I managed to get a workaround but it's not perfect.
So I store .pbix file on a SharePoint for a Version Control.
I went to Power BI Service -> Get data -> Files (Get) -> Pointed to my SharePoint location and it successfully published the report. But now I have two reports with same name... so it's not ideal.
I'm also wondering how this issue could be fixed.
We faced the same issue recently.
Solution that worked for us :
We changed the workspace settings from Premium to Pro and then published the dashboard which was successful. I believe the issue was with query caching which was On for this particular dataset and its a feature which is available for premium workspace. We reverted to premium workspace and query caching is off now.
For me the issue was with a report that is connected to a Power BI dataset.
I reconnected to the dataset (from Datasource Settings) and this solved the issue
I did this solution and it worked perfectly.
i had the same issue. i removed the report and dataset from the service. And i published again. It has published succesfully.
Is there a solution for this? I am running into this same issue and tried all the workarounds listed above with no success. I have never run into this before and it's currently affecting 4 of my reports.
same here today, the error came again out of a suddon, for different reports / sources / workspaces.
Adjusting the workspace is not an option anymore.
In Desktop > data source settings > for all sources changed privacy from "none" to "organizational" - et voila.
I was able to solve this by creating a new blank PBIX file of the same name and uploading it (overwriting the existing dataset). Then open up the original pbix and reupload (and overwrite your blank one). This approach retains all of the lineage reports and worked for me.
We encountered the same issue. Additionally, the service gave this error when trying to refresh online: "The refresh operation failed because it took more than 120 minutes to complete. Consider reducing the size of your dataset or breaking it up into smaller datasets."
We tried the suggestions above but without success. If you have embedded / premium capacity, you could try turning this setting off and on again, this fixed it for us:
We had this issue today, the workarounds didn't work however I found another one..
Clearing Cache did not work, and republishing fresh datasets is not practical as all of the report hyperlinks will change for our consumers.
In the PowerBI Service, I went to
>Turn on Q&A to ask natural language questions about your data
>Switch it off via tickbox
You also have to update your .PBIX Desktop file via the following steps, as it will just push the setting back in over the top
>Q&A for Live connected Analysis Services databases
Note, I had cleared the QA cache which was over 1GB, however that step in isolation made no difference
I encountered similar situation and tried the solutions above but they didn't work.
The solution in my case is related to the permissions.
In Power BI Desktop -> File ->Options and Setting->Data Source Setting
Global Permissions->Edit permissions
Just relogin all the Organization account and problem solved.
I had the same issue and this fixed it for me! Very easy fix: one of my data sources was set to anonymous instead of organization sign in--logging in with organizational account fixed it. Thanks!
I have the same issue, except it also won't refresh from the web service. I end up having to delete the report and dataset and re-upload, or publish under a different name. This is a major issue as it creates a break from the reports to all the pinned visuals on the dashboards.
This has happened roughly half a dozen times but only in the last few months, never had this problem before, over the 12m I've been using BI.
The 'Solution' currently given in this topic isn't a workable solution only a workaround which isn't really sustainable.
I was able to solve this by creating a new blank PBIX file of the same name and uploading it. Then open up the original pbix and reupload. This approach retains all of the lineage reports.
