Cant assign my workspace to a specific capacity when I am using the command Set-PowerBIWorkspace -Scope Organization -Id "<workspaceid" -CapacityId "<capacityid>".

It throws the following error:

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

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.

Hello Power BI Service Administrator is now Fabric Administrator

We are using a SNP to set Workspace Description as well as capacity and continue to get the same error message. 

 

We have confirmed that the SNP has the appropiate API permissions and have added the SNP to a SG that has been added to the appropriate BI Tenant Settings
