Set-PowerBIWorkspace error

Hello, 

I am trying to change the name of a workspace without success:

Here is my code:

 

Set-PowerBIWorkspace -Scope Organization -Id "1fe0391c-cc6f-495a-bd48-b397c1ea2481" -Name "Test DS WS" -Description "Test WS for PS Added some description"

 

Here is the error:

 

Set-PowerBIWorkspace : Operation returned an invalid status code 'Unauthorized'
Au caractère Ligne:1 : 1

Hi @Charline_74 ,

According to the error message, it seems that you didn't have the sufficient privileges to do it. The administrator rights (such as Office 365 Global Administrator or Power BI Service Administrator) is necessary when you call this command. And it only support the workspaces in the new workspace experiences. Please review the following official documentation for more details.

 Dear @v-yiruan-msft, I get the point that the API User (Service Principal) need the administrator rights. But how can I add these (Office 365 Global Administrator or Power BI Service Administrator) to the Service Principal? 

 

I get a quite similar error measseage when I want to change or add a workspace description to a workspace which was created by the service princial.
