Still acces to published app after I deleted the workspace?

After I deleted a workspace and removed the app inside PBI Online I can't see or access it. When I logout and login again the workspace is deleted but the app is still there. And more surprisingly (and scary) I can still acces the reports, dashboards and see the data.  When I try to acces the sharepoint group from the workspace I get a log that the connection is closed. 

 

How can I permantly delete the app and the related connection to the deleted workspace and datasource?

@mhvdb The app workspaces are still tied to O365 groups, and this issue with groups being deleted with content still in them not being deleted is a known issue... I haven't seen that there was any resolution outside of creating a support ticket in which MSFT would have to go clean it up. It is somewhat concerning that it is manifesting itself in this new way, but not completely surprising given the previous history. Submit this to the Issues section, it's a big deal that needs to get cleaned up.

Same thing happened to me. I tried to remove an app by deleting the workspace--but now the app is still out there and I can't unpublish the app because I can't access the deleted workspace. @Seth_C_Bauer: Can you please tell me how to open a ticket to have MSFT manually remove this app?

@Anonymous On the support page - https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/support/ scroll down and you will see a place to "Create Support Ticket" - as long as you have a Pro license I believe you get a number of these support tickets for free.

Thanks, @Seth_C_Bauer.

 

One follow-up question: When I created the app workspace, I selected "Public - Anyone can see what's inside". Just to confirm, "public" means public to my organization, correct? Meaning nobody outside of our internal domain could get access to those published apps?

@Anonymous Correct, Public means it is visible to people within your organization, not externally.
