Hi @markcabantog ,

 

Try to use planned invite in Azure and see if it works.

 

  • From Azure Portal
  • Select Azure Active Directory
  • User Settings
  • Manage external collaboration settings

With Webdashboard you can easily share your Power BI reports and dashboards, with an intern and external users. All you need is an e-mail address. You can try Webdashboard for 30 days and if you need any help, they will quickly react. It's available at the Microsoft App Source and for more information, you can visit the website: www.webdashboard.com

Hi @v-kkf-msft  it's different,,,not same error

Hi @markcabantog ,

 

Does this case exist only for one guest user or all guest users? Does your organization have the following options enabled in the Admin portal?

only for 1 guest user.. but other guest user with the same domain name are added no issue

Hi @markcabantog ,

 

Based on my testing, if you invite someone outside the organization for the first time, the user will appear under the "Pending" page after sharing the report.

So you need to invite someone outside the organization to become a guest user, there are two ways:

For planned invite, please refer to my previous reply (Invite in Azure).
For ad hoc invite, you can add the user in the Direct access of the report. When the user clicks on the report link in the email sent to him, the following page will pop up.

Then click "Accept", the user will become a guest user in your organization and will be able to see the shared report, and the user will disappear from the "Pending" page.

Hi,

I tried this, and shared report with external account. doing this enabled me to grant access to that external account, however when that person tried to see the report they couldn't. Due to this error:

Would really appreciate any leads on this, thanks
