My chat displays well on power bi desktop(optimized for report server) but After uploading my report on Power bi report server I get this error telling me:

"This visual contains restricted data
To view this visual, contact the dataset owner to request access to the data behind it below"
all visuals have this errorall visuals have this error


I did not previously always have this issue with this same report. I also am the administrator, builder and uploader of my report.

So the restriction has been removed But i think it might be an error at either the online or desktop level. I created a Role while testing RLS on the desktop but never implemented it online. So to solve the issue i had, i created a new folder for the new report i want to upload, checked the security to make sure there is no RLS and security restriction from the repsective options,  i also deleted all roles from the desktop using Modelling >> "Manage Roles". I also changed the "view as" to "none". I then uploaded to the new folder i created on report server. It worked fine.

This means you've created one or more security roles in your model, but the user viewing the report is not a member of any of those roles.
