Users cannot view visuals with composite model as a data source.

Hi everyone,


I am having issues where some of my users cannot view reports that are using a composite model data set that we set up. 


All of the datasets are in the same premium workspace and I have a pro license. 


The composite data set consists of three PBI data sets, all saved and uploaded from SharePoint. 


I made sure that the users had build permissions for each of the data sets and the composite data set, and I even made them admins in our workspace, but still no luck!


The users that are having issues have a free account (maybe with a free 90-day trial). Some of the people on my team who have a Pro license are able to see the visuals. Also, the free users are able to see visuals in reports that have one of our normal data sets underlying the report.


Any suggestions on how to fix this?
