Can refresh dataset in app.powerbi.com but cannot execute queries against it

 

I am trying to execute a query to get a table out of a dataset using Azure Data Factory web activity. I am using the following documentation:

 

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/datasets/execute-queries-in-group

 

The following API call:

 

 

POST https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/{groupID}/datasets/{datasetID}/executeQueries/


Body: {
"queries": [
{
"query": "EVALUATE VALUES('{table name}')"
}
],
"serializerSettings": {
"includeNulls": true
},
"impersonatedUserName": {myAdmin@Email.com}
}


Authentication: System Assigned Managed Identity

Resource: https://analysis.windows.net/powerbi/api

 

 

 

Returns the following error: {"error":{"code":"PowerBINotAuthorizedException","pbi.error":{"code":"PowerBINotAuthorizedException","parameters":{},"details":[],"exceptionCulprit":1}}}

 

However, the API call below does execute successfully:

 

 

 

POST https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/{groupID}/datasets/{datasetID}/refreshes/

body: {
"retryCount": 0
}

Authentication: System Assigned Managed Identity

Resource: https://analysis.windows.net/powerbi/api

 

 

 

As far as I am aware, I have enabled all necessary permissions in the admin portal of app.powerbi.com. If the POST call to refresh a dataset is working, I do not know why the executeQueries API call is not working.

 

Is there something I am missing about permissions in the workspace in app.powerbi.com?

Do you have "Build"  permissions against the semantic model?

Yes. Both the Data Factory and the impersonatedUserName have Workspace Admin and All Permissions Granted.
